Examining the Nature of the Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN)-Orthographic Processing Relationship in University StudentsDownload
According to Bowers and Wolf (1993), rapid automatized naming (RAN) is related to reading because of its contribution to orthographic processing. However, the nature of the RAN-orthographic processing relationship remains unclear. Thus, the purpose of this study was two-fold: (a) to examine the...
The purpose of the present study was twofold: (a) to examine what cognitive processes differentiate between gifted readers and controls, and (b) to examine the individual profiles of gifted readers. One hundred forty-four grade 4 to 6 elementary school children (54 grade 4, 55 grade 5, and 35...
This study examined the nature and cognitive predictors of orthographic learning in 20 adults with dyslexia and 27 controls. Orthographic learning was assessed with an orthographic choice task and with eye movements in reading a passage embedded with novel words. Participants also completed tasks...
The purpose of the present study was twofold: (a) to examine what PASS processes differentiate gifted children from chronological-age controls and (b) to examine what PASS processes predict reading and mathematics achievement. Twenty-six gifted children (13 females; mean age = 10 years and four 4...
The Effects of Reading Interventions on the Word-Reading Performance of English Language Learners: A Meta-AnalysisDownload
Despite a large body of research on the effectiveness of reading interventions for monolingual English speakers, research on reading interventions for English language learners (ELLs) is still relatively scarce. Because the number of ELLs in schools is growing rapidly and these students often...
This dissertation includes three papers that investigate the distinction between serial and discrete processing in rapid naming and word reading tasks, across three elementary grades (1, 3, and 5) and two languages (English and Greek). Rapid naming and word reading tasks were utilized in two...
