Mellard, Daryl F.; Fall, Emily – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2012
The following insights into the reading skills of 312 participants in adult basic and secondary education programs are based on a principal components analysis of reading components' contributions to variance in reading comprehension. Overall, 75% of variance was explained by four composite variables representing word skills, language…

Mellard, Daryl F.; Woods, Kari L.; Desa, Deana Md. – Career and Technical Education Research, 2012
High literacy and numeracy demands in career and technical education (CTE) compared to low skill levels among many students prompted calls for academic infusion into training curricula. Research on CTE academic curriculum integration implicitly assumes that students' reading and math skills are like those described by models of typical academic…

Towles-Reeves, Elizabeth; Kearns, Jacqueline; Kleinert, Harold; Kleinert, Jane – Journal of Special Education, 2009
This study examined the learner characteristics of students in alternate assessments based on alternate achievement standards in three geographically and demographically different states. On the basis of the results, it can be argued that students in alternate assessments fall into at least two distinct subgroups. The first set of learners have…

Purcell-Gates, Victoria; Duke, Nell K.; Martineau, Joseph A. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
This study explored, with both experimental and correlational designs, the roles of (a) authentic, communicatively functional reading and writing and (b) the explicit explanation of genre function and features on growth in genre-specific reading and writing abilities of children in grades two and three. The genres used for this exploration were…

Strucker, John; Yamamoto, Kentaro; Kirsch, Irwin – National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL), 2007
This study's aim was to understand the relationship of the component skills of reading, such as word recognition, vocabulary, and spelling, to large-scale measures of literacy, such as the 1992 National Adult Literacy Survey (NALS) (Kirsch, Jungleblut, Jenkins, & Kolstad, 1993) and the closely related International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS)…

Edyburn, Dave L. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
The purpose of this article is to outline four categories of issues that are fundamental to understanding the efficacy of technology for enhancing reading performance. The four categories of issues include: (1) What does it mean when we say a person is a reader or a nonreader?; (2) Instructional methods: Lessons of the achievement gap; (3)…

Wagner, Dana; McComas, Jennifer J.; Bollman, Kerry; Holton, Erin – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2006
Children who fail to become fluent readers by the end of the primary grades are likely to achieve below same-age peers throughout their school careers. With growing use of curriculum-based measures (CBMs), it is easier to identify those students who are achieving below same-age peers. Moreover, a process of conducting individualized assessment and…

Daghio, M. Monica; Fattori, Giuseppe; Ciardullo, Anna V. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2006
Objectives: We compared two non-alternative methods to assess the readability and learning of easy-to-read educational health materials co-written by physicians, educators and citizens. Methods: Data from seven easy-to-read materials were analyzed. Readability formulae, and ad hoc data on readability and learning were also computed. Results: The…

Tekin-Iftar, Elif – Education and Training in Developmental Disabilities, 2003
This study assessed effectiveness of peer delivered simultaneous prompting (SP) in teaching the expressive identification of community signs to four students with developmental disabilities. Results showed that the tutors delivered the SP reliably and tutees were able to expressively identify community signs. Tutees maintained acquired skills one…
