Re: CBE: curriculum based evaluation/oral reading



That's not very helpful. There is some good research on this by Dr. Stan
Deno. Oral reading rates do correlate with other things. I suggest you not
waste time on ARN with such drivel...yes, Virginia, oral reading rates do
measure how fast a person reads out loud. You get an A in stating the
obvious.

Oral reading rates measure how fast a person reads aloud. The last I heard,
brains work more quickly than mouths, so once we are reading--say by 4th
grade (?)--, we always read faster to ourselves than we do aloud.

Does anyone know exactly what oral reading rates measure? I can see how
it would correlate and/or measure fluency, auditory processing, word
recognition (in context), vocabulary. What else do oral reading rates
measure?
Thanks,
