What Do Children Do in the Rime-Analogy Task? An Examination of the Skills and Strategies Used by Early Readers.
Roberts, Lynne; McDougall, Sine
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v84 n4 p310-37 Apr 2003
This study contrasted and compared the extent to which phoneme and rhyme-based skills and letter-sound knowledge predicted 4- and 5-year-olds' performance in the analogy task and in a test of single work reading. Findings suggested that the balance of skills that children drew upon was determined by the demands of the task. Findings pose implications for the validity of the orthographic-analogy task and for teaching beginning readers. (Author/KB)
