Relation between Early Reading Acquisition and Word Decoding with and without Context: A Longitudinal Study of First-Grade Children.
Stanovich, Keith E.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n4 p668-77 Aug 1984
The speed and accuracy of skilled and less skilled first-grade readers were assessed in the fall and spring. Children read random lists of words and coherent paragraphs. Poor decoding skills, rather than an inability to use content to facilitate word recognition, caused the poor performance of less skilled readers. (Author/BS)
