ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this study was to examine the validity of growth rates of both phonological awareness and oral reading fluency. An important focus was to explore the potential that these measures could be useful for early identification and intervention for children at risk within an Response to Intervention(RTI). Participants were 52 children enrolled in Seoul and Kyungki Kindergarten. The children across ages 4 to 5 were administered these early reading measures in each month. This study showed that even though there were high correlation coefficients in slopes between the two measures, the growth rate for phonological awareness was not a significant predictor of the oral reading fluency growth rate. Future research and limitations on this study are discussed.
