Overview of “Reading Skills” and Preview
As the reader may recall, one of our original aims in doing this study was to examine the overall relationship between various types of reading skills. In order to examine the relationship between each type of reading skill and general reading ability at each grade, we entered the computed scores, along with nonverbal IQ, into a stepwise multiple-regression equation to predict reading ability at each grade. The computed scores that were included in these analyses were the performance measures of decoding, comprehension, and strategies (efficiency), and the verbalization measures of decoding, comprehension, and advanced strategies. The order of entry and the amount of incremental variance accounted for by each score at each grade is presented in Table 5-1.
