Assessing Student Word Recognition Skills.
Ediger, Marlow
To become fluent readers students need to become proficient in recognizing words. Word recognition is a skill and not an end in and of itself. This paper cites the following reading behaviors of students who do poorly in word recognition: (1) read in a halting manner; (2) identify words incorrectly; (3) fail to read in thought units; (4) mispronounce closely spelled words; (5) do not use phonics to recognize unknown words; (6) reread words and phrases which have already been identified correctly; (7) do not try to identify the unknown words; (8) call words aloud but do not understand what has been read; (9) insert words when reading; and (10) omit selected words while reading content. The paper then discusses in detail the 10 poor reading behaviors. (NKA)
