Improving Teacher Prediction of Children at Risk for Reading Failure.
Flynn, Jane M.; Rahbar, Mohammad Hossein
Psychology in the Schools, v35 n2 p163-72 Apr 1998
Confirms low positive identification rates when kindergarten teachers were asked to predict future reading achievement using a traditional rating scale, while a project-developed, theory-based screening battery correctly identified 81% of poor readers. Suggests that both teacher ratings and screening tests be used to identify the largest number of those who will later fail in reading. (MKA)
