Modeling the Growth of Decoding Skills in First-Grade Children.
Compton, Donald L.
Scientific Studies of Reading, v4 n3 p219-59 2000
Examines relative importance of both static and dynamic measures of cognitive-processing abilities and emergent print knowledge in first-grade children. Finds growth in cognitive-processing abilities and general knowledge about print could be measured and adequately modeled. Suggests a strong association between the rate of growth in cognitive processing, print knowledge, and decoding skills in the very earliest stages of reading development. (RS)
