Sabatini, John; Wang, Zuowei; O'Reilly, Tenaha – Reading Research Quarterly, 2019
In this secondary analysis study, the authors explored the relations between reading comprehension and oral reading performance in fourth-grade students, using a data set from the U.S. National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) special study of oral reading. The data set consisted of 1,713 students randomly selected from the 140,000 fourth…

Gorp, Karly; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Reading Research Quarterly, 2017
The effects of a word identification game aimed at enhancing decoding efficiency in poor readers were tested. Following a pretest-posttest-retention design with a waiting control group, 62 poor-reading Dutch second graders received a five-hour tablet intervention across a period of five weeks. During the intervention, participants practiced…

Arnesen, Anne; Braeken, Johan; Baker, Scott; Meek-Hansen, Wilhelm; Ogden, Terje; Melby-Lervåg, Monica – Reading Research Quarterly, 2017
This study investigated an adaptation of the Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) measure of the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills into a European context for the Norwegian language, which has a more transparent orthography than English. Second-order latent growth curve modeling was used to examine the longitudinal measurement invariance of…

Kabuto, Bobbie – Reading Research Quarterly, 2016
This article highlights one mother-son case study that was part of a larger study, Revaluing Readers and Families (Kabuto, [Kabuto, B., 2009], [Kabuto, B., 2015]). Here the author focuses on how the mother, Terry, interpreted her 7-year-old son Peter's oral reading performances and how her interpretation led her to construct a label around a…

Kim, Young-Suk Grace – Reading Research Quarterly, 2015
The primary goal was to expand our understanding of text-reading fluency (efficiency or automaticity): how its relation to other constructs (e.g., word-reading fluency, reading comprehension) changes over time and how it is different from word-reading fluency and reading comprehension. The study examined (a) developmentally changing relations…

Benjamin, Rebekah George; Schwanenflugel, Paula J.; Meisinger, Elizabeth B.; Groff, Carolyn; Kuhn, Melanie R.; Steiner, Lilly – Reading Research Quarterly, 2013
This study evaluated the validity of a new scale for assessing children's reading fluency skill called the Comprehensive Oral Reading Fluency Scale (CORFS). The CORFS consists of two subscales that capture key elements of the Kuhn, Schwanenflugel, and Meisinger (2010) definition of reading fluency: reading expression, reading rate, and accuracy.…

Benjamin, Rebekah George; Schwanenflugel, Paula J. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2010
The purpose of the study was to examine the impact of text difficulty on the oral reading prosody of young children. Fluency in reading is ideally determined by measuring rate, accuracy, and prosodic qualities in the oral reading of children. Spectrographic measurements of four prosodic variables--sentence-final F[subscript 0] change, intonation…

Valencia, Sheila W.; Smith, Antony T.; Reece, Anne M.; Li, Min; Wixson, Karen K.; Newman, Heather – Reading Research Quarterly, 2010
This study investigated multiple models for assessing oral reading fluency, including 1-minute oral reading measures that produce scores reported as words correct per minute (wcpm). We compared a measure of wcpm with measures of the individual and combined indicators of oral reading fluency (rate, accuracy, prosody, and comprehension) to examine…

Riedel, Brant W. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
The relation between Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) and reading comprehension at the end of first grade and second grade was examined in a sample of 1,518 first-grade students from a large urban school district. Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analyses were used to determine optimal DIBELS cut scores for…

Paulson, Eric J. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2005
This theoretical article examines reading processes using chaos theory as an analogy. Three principles of chaos theory are identified and discussed, then related to reading processes as revealed through eye movement research. Used as an analogy, the chaos theory principle of sensitive dependence contributes to understanding the difficulty in…

Rasinski, Timothy V.; Hoffman, James V. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2003
Explores more deeply the role of oral reading in instructional practice, primarily in the elementary grades and with students who struggle in reading. Attempts to conceptualize more fully the positive role oral reading may play in classroom instruction, notes ways in which some persisting forms of oral reading practice in classrooms are counter to…
