ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate writing measures for early screening for first-second graders at risk. Especially, in this study, picture-word prompt measure was used as a measure for identifying struggling beginning writers. In this study, 42 students from B elementary school in the A city were participated. In order to evaluate alternate-form reliability and predictive validity, pearson correlation-coefficients were used, while ROC curve analyses were used for evaluating accuracy of classification. This study showed that the picture-word prompt measure could be considered as an adequate indicator of predicting struggling beginning writers. In addition, the use of ROC curve analyses resulted in increasing the probability of accuracy of classification. Implication for research and practices are presented.
