Fedora, Pledger M. – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2016
This study used secondary data to test the double-deficit hypothesis that rapid automatized naming (RAN) deficits and phonological awareness (PA) deficits are 2 core reading-related deficits and that students exhibiting deficits in both areas would be the most severely impaired in entry-level reading ability. Specifically, this study investigated…

Keller-Margulis, Milena; Payan, Anita; Jaspers, Kathryn E.; Brewton, Christie – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2016
The use of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) for screening is well established, but there has been less research regarding the technical adequacy of written expression CBM (WE-CBM) for screening and the utility of this type of measure when used with students with diverse language backgrounds. The purpose of this study was to examine the validity…
