Assessing "Combining Forms" in Science.
Floriani, Bernard P.; Cairns, Jack C.
Science and Children, v19 n4 p58-59 Jan 1982
Since there appears to be a direct relationship between reading comprehension and vocabulary, an inventory is offered which assesses students' knowledge of the meaning of "combining forms" (automobile, aero-dynamics, etc.) and not words themselves. The inventory can serve as a model to develop additional inventories for Latin/Greek roots. (Author/JN)
