Rasinski, Timothy; Galeza, Abbey; Vogel, Lauren; Viton, Brittany; Rundo, Heather; Royan, Emma; Nemer Shaheen, Randa; Bartholomew, Monica; Kaewkaemket, Chotika; Stokes, Faida; Young, Chase; Paige, David – Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, 2022
Reading fluency has been identified as a critical competency for reading success. Accurate and automatic word recognition, one component of fluency, is normally assessed through reading rate (Oral Reading Fluency--ORF). While norms for ORF exist through grade 8, norms beyond grade 8 are largely unknown. The present study attempted to establish ORF…

Ruotsalainen, Jenni; Pakarinen, Eija; Poikkeus, Anna-Maija; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina – Journal of Research in Reading, 2022
Background: Adapting instruction to individual students' needs is known to be effective, but there is a lack of evidence whether students' reading skills are associated with literacy instruction activities at classroom-level. Both the content of the literacy instruction and teachers' instructional support through instructional management are…

Wetzler, Elizabeth L.; Pyke, Aryn A.; Werner, Adam – SAGE Open, 2021
Subsequent recall is improved if students try to recall target material during study (self-testing) versus simply re-reading it. This effect is consistent with the notion of "desirable difficulties." If the learning experience involves difficulties that induce extra effort, then retention may be improved. Not all difficulties are…

Silva, Warley Almeida; Carchedi, Luiz Carlos; Junior, Jorão Gomes; Victor de Souza, João; Barrere, Eduardo; Francisco de Souza, Jairo – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2021
Learning assessments are important to monitor the progress of students throughout the teaching process. In the digital era, many local and large-scale learning assessments are conducted through technological tools. In this view, a large-scale learning assessment can be designed to tackle one or multiple parts of the teaching process. Oral reading…

Dilgard, Cortney; Hodges, Tracey S. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2022
Phonics and fluency instruction are primarily viewed as elementary-centric skills that do not have a place in middle school, which may neglect the usefulness this type of instruction provides to older students. Literacy centers are one method for successfully teaching these skills in a middle school setting. The purpose of this paper is to provide…

Leloup, Gilles; Anders, Royce; Charlet, Valentin; Eula-Fantozzi, Béatrice; Fossoud, Catherine; Cavalli, Eddy – Annals of Dyslexia, 2021
In this work, two different studies are examined to evaluate the effectiveness of a novel intervention program for the improvement of reading ability in children with dyslexia, known as repeated reading with vocal music masking (RVM). The proposed remedial approach is inspired by Breznitz's original work. The studies assess a 5-week program of…

Liceralde, Van Rynald T.; Loukina, Anastassia; Beigman Klebanov, Beata; Lockwood, John R. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
Variability in oral reading fluency (ORF), an indicator of foundational reading skills, has been linked to characteristics of texts. Such "text-based variability" in ORF has been traditionally attributed to text complexity, but substantial text-based variability has still been observed after accounting for text complexity. We consider…

Argyropoulos, Vassilios; Sideridis, Georgios; Nikolaraizi, Magda; Martos, Aineas; Padeliadu, Suzana; Gkyrtis, Konstantinos; Koutsogiorgou, Sofia-Marina – Education and Information Technologies, 2020
The purpose of the present report was to evaluate the time individuals spent in reading using the 6-dot braille code versus the 8-dot braille code. Twenty individuals with blindness participated in a series of experiments using refreshable braille displays. Each participant was invited to read structured texts by touch and then to answer to…

Paige, David D.; Cassady, Elizabeth; Rupley, William H. – Journal of College Academic Support Programs, 2020
The task of college admissions officers is to identify applicants who are likely prepared to succeed at their institution. While student preparation is the domain of the continually changing K-12 educational landscape, it is left to college admission officers to evaluate the extent of that preparation on a student-by-student basis. In the effort…

Steinle, Paul K.; Stevens, Elizabeth; Vaughn, Sharon – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2022
This systematic review synthesizes fluency intervention research for struggling readers in Grades 6 through 12 from January 2006 to October 2019. The search yielded 17 studies examining reading fluency and comprehension outcomes. Most studies examined repeated reading (RR) interventions to improve reading fluency for struggling readers at these…

Obergfell, Anja L.; Schmidt, Barbara M.; Stenneken, Prisca; Wittemann, Sonja K.; Schabmann, Alfred – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
This study investigates the effects of prosodic sensitivity on reading. Highly capable adult musicians (i.e., persons with potentially excellent prosodic skills) and non-musicians were compared in terms of prosodic sensitivity and reading. Furthermore, the study examines possible reciprocal effects of prosodic sensitivity and reading. Sixty native…

Francis, Deanna A.; Hudson, Jennifer L.; Robidoux, Serje; McArthur, Genevieve M. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2022
There is a reliable association between poor reading and anxiety, but we do not completely understand the specifics of this relationship. The current study included a sample of children (N = 284; M[subscript age] = 9.30, SD[subscript age] = 1.31) who completed a reading (word, nonword, and text reading accuracy, word, nonword, and text reading…

Stouffer, Joe – Reading Teacher, 2021
Responding to recent challenges to Clay's Running Records (2019) and their analysis using a three-cueing system, the author examines this reading assessment from an additive perspective of both bottom-up and top-down orientations of reading instruction. Endorsing their inclusion among classroom reading assessments, the author navigates the tension…

Greene-Woods, Ashley; Delgado, Natalie – Psychology in the Schools, 2020
In the field of education, there is a great emphasis placed on literacy, from reading fluency to writing. There are various approaches that teachers can use in their classroom to design and identify needed areas of instruction, but these approaches do not always apply to Deaf Education. The act of using the same assessments throughout all student…

Virinkoski, Riitta; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Eklund, Kenneth; Aro, Mikko – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2022
This study investigated special educational needs (SEN) teachers' (n = 29) assessment practices and the accuracy of their ratings of the students' (M age = 12.75 years, n = 55) skill levels in reading fluency and reading comprehension. Teachers rated their sixth grade students' fluency and comprehension on a three-point scale, and the students…
