The Relationship between Prosodic Oral Reading Assessments and Standards-Based Reading Assessment in a 2nd Grade Classroom
Kariuki, Patrick; Baxter, Andrew
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mid-South Educational Research Association (Oxford, MS, Nov 2-4, 2011)
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between prosodic oral reading and overall reading comprehension of second grade students. The sample consisted of ten students who were randomly selected from a second grade classroom. The students read aloud from the book "Bedtime for Frances" by Lillian and Russell Hoban for a total of three and a half minutes. Data were collected using the Multi-dimensional Fluency Scale developed by Rasinski to score the students prosodic oral reading. Overall reading comprehension was measured using the Pearson Benchmark assessment for language arts and reading. The results indicated a significant relationship between prosodic reading and comprehension (r = 0.884). Multiple regression on selected predictors did not indicate significant influence on overall comprehension. Classroom teachers are encouraged to use prosodic reading as an additional tool to reading comprehension. (Contains 1 table.)
