An Analysis of Learning Trends in Simple Measure of Reading, Spelling, and Written Expression: A Longitudinal Study.
Marston, Doug; And Others
The performance of elementary students was measured at three different times during the school year, and examined across grades using measures of reading, spelling, and written expression. The measures were found to be sensitive to growth across grade levels, and similar within-grade trends were demonstrated, particularly in reading and spelling. The measures appear to be most sensitive to growth at grade levels one through four. Less consistent growth was observed at grades five and six. (Author/GK)
