A Comparison of Oral Reading and Silent Reading on a Standardized Reading Achievement Test.
Sposato, Susan E.
The purpose of this study was to determine if the comprehension of 33 second grade students on a standardized test is the same whether the test is read silently or orally. The students silently read Level B, Form 1 of the "Gates MacGinitie Reading Test"; during the month that followed, individual students read Level B, Form 2, of the test orally, carefully following all directions. Results of the study show no significant differences between the two tests; several children did score higher on one form or the other, but as a group the results were essentially the same.
