The Simple View of Reading: Is It Valid for Different Types of Alphabetic Orthographies?
Florit, Elena; Cain, Kate
Educational Psychology Review, v23 n4 p553-576 Dec 2011
We present a meta-analysis to test the validity of the Simple View of Reading Gough & Tunmer ("Remedial and Special Education," 7:6-10, "1986") for beginner readers of English and other, more transparent, orthographies. Our meta-analytic approach established that the relative influence of decoding and linguistic comprehension on reading comprehension is different for readers of different types of orthography during the course of early reading development. Furthermore, we identified key differences in the relations among different measures of decoding and reading comprehension between readers of English and other more transparent orthographies. We discuss the implications for reading instruction and the diagnosis of reading difficulties, as well as our theoretical understanding of how component skills influence reading comprehension level. (Contains 3 tables and 4 footnotes.)
