Examining the Cross-Lagged Relationships between RAN and Word Reading in Chinese
Wei, Wei; Georgiou, George K.; Deng, Ciping
Scientific Studies of Reading, v19 n6 p446-455 2015
The purpose of this 4-year longitudinal study was to specify the direction of the relationship between RAN and word reading (accuracy and fluency) in Chinese. This is important in light of arguments that the developmental relationships between RAN and reading can disclose changes in the reading processes underlying reading as development proceeds. One hundred thirty-five Mandarin-speaking Chinese children (65 boys, 70 girls; M age = 96.40 months) were assessed on RAN (digits), word-reading accuracy (Character Recognition), and word-reading fluency (One-Minute Reading). The children were assessed on the same measures when they were in Grades 3, 4, and 5. The results of path analysis indicated that the effects between RAN and word reading were unidirectional and subject to the type of reading outcome: Only RAN predicted word reading and only when word reading was operationalized with a reading fluency measure.
