Sample text

Tasks requiring explicit phonological awareness, such as the blending and the segmentation task, continue to present great difficulty. On the phoneme blending task 34% scored zero, and on the phoneme segmentation task 63% were unable to complete a single item. But there is a slight increase overall. The average scores on nonword repetition and the gating tasks also have increased over those of 12 months earlier, but as noted above the change in gating scores was not significant. At T3 the children then had received reading and writing instruction in Grade 1 for approximately five months.

First, for each moment of testing a Literacy variable was created as a composite score of both reading and letter-sound knowledge. Second, Phonological Awareness was considered as a composite of phonemic blending scores and phonemic segmentation. In Table 2 the Pearson correlation coefficients between the experimental measures are presented.

The words had the same structure as the words in the blending test and were all known by children at this age. Three practice items were included. 89. Gating. Children were asked to identify a word from a partial acoustic signal presented via headphones attached to a computer (Grosjean, 1980; Metsala, 1997). Six different, high frequency, single syllable (c)cvc(c) words known by all 5 and 6 year olds were used. e. words that had the same onset and vowel but another final consonant (cluster). After all items in the stimulus array were played through, the duration of the audio samples played (the gate) increased.
