Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, v10 n1 p115-122 Apr 2010
The purpose of this study was to develop a new Greek phonological awareness test for preschool and primary school age children (ages 5-7) in Greece and Cyprus. A new phonological awareness test with 168 items was individually administered to 132 students (60 students in Cyprus and 72 students in Greece) from five urban, five semi-rural, and three rural schools. The results showed that there were differences in phonological awareness between Greek and Greek-Cypriot students in all age groups. There were no differences in relation to gender in either country and there were no differences in phonological awareness in relation to school area. (Contains 8 tables.)
