Do Spelling Tests Measure the Ability to Spell?
Craft, A. Cedric
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v42 n3 p715-23 Fall 1982
The validity of spelling tests in several formats was investigated against the criterion of an estimate of spelling accuracy in ranked writing samples. The correlation between writing samples and spelling production was greater than with recognition of correct spelling. Variations in reliability and rankings were not responsible for the relationship. (Author/CM)
