This study examined the validity of letter-name fluency and nonsense word fluency (NWF) measures as indicators of early reading skill with 39 kindergarten children who were tested again in first grade. Evidence supportive of validity was found for both measures, with NWF receiving the strongest support and both fluency measures more sensitive than any other measure. (Contains references.)
