Assessing Children's Silent Reading
Yule, Valerie
Online Submission, Educational Research v29 n3 Nov 1987
Less is known about how children read connected text in silent reading, and the range of reading strategies used in an ordinary primary school classroom, than about the reading of single words, oral reading and reading by skilled adults. This paper describes and evaluates a method of testing children's silent reading in which they are their own judges. Two appendixes include: (1) A fairy tale with difficult spelling; and (2) A modified version of a Wordsworth sonnet, with easier spelling but more difficult to understand. (Contains 2 tables.)
