Abstract

There were four purposes for the study: 1. To determine the interrelationships existing between the primary grade tests within the New Scott-Foresman Basic Reading test series. 2. To determine the relative efficiency of two reading readiness tests, the Lee-Clark test and the Gates test, in predicting children’s later success in reading. 3. To determine the relative efficiency of the Lee-Clark Reading Test: Primer and the Lee-Clark Reading Test: First Reader in predicting subsequent success in reading. 4. To establish norms for the New Scott-Foresman Basic Reading Tests that may be used in the community in which the study was conducted.
