2 cards were opened to provide the student with an opportunity to attack the word. Percent Correct scores were generated for flashed or Immediate Accuracy and un-timed or Total Accuracy. Testing was discontinued when students scored less that 50% correct for the Immediate score and less than 50% for the Total. In all but two cases students were last tested on a Word Identification list equal to or of greater difficulty than their instructional spelling list. Instructional Level for Immediate Word Identification Accuracy level was defined as the highest list on which a student scored 50% or better. Instructional Level for Total Word Identification Accuracy was scored in two ways: Following many informal reading inventories, it was defined as the highest list on which the student scored 70% or better. To be consistent with the scoring for the other two word variables, a second Instructional Level was determined using 50% as the criterion. In order to gain more precision in measuring performance on all three measures, the percent of words correct was added as a decimal to the instructional level. This helped differentiate between students with varying percentages of words correct within an Instructional Level. Data Analysis The resulting data set was analyzed in several ways. Means and standard deviations for word identification and spelling variables were calculated, as were correlations between these variables. One-way ANOVAs were used to compare pairs of variables for the whole sample and the individual grade levels At a more detailed level, subjects were regrouped by spelling instructional level. For that list and one list beyond, performance on each word was categorized according to six possible combinations of spelling and word identification accuracy in order to examine the hypothesis that accurate word identification consistently precedes spelling accuracy, as developmental theory predicts. Those combinations are presented in the table below. Table 1. Possible Combinations of Spelling and Word Identification Accuracy Category Spelling Accuracy Immediate Accuracy Total Accuracy One Two Three Four Five Six 1 1 1

3 In addition, for individual words accuracy scores across subjects were calculated for spelling, immediate identification and total identification. Then correlations were generated between spelling and the word identification scores to explore whether words were similarly easy or difficult for spelling and word identification. Correlations for the three tests that had a sufficient number of students at spelling instructional and/or frustration levels were calculated. For each word on these lists accuracy scores for each measure were then transformed to generate relative distances from the mean by subtracting individual scores from the mean and dividing by the standard deviation for each set. Results For the whole sample there were significant differences in means for Spelling and the three Word Identification variables. However, only one difference between means at the individual grade levels was significant (Spelling vs. Total 50%, Grade Three, p<.05). This lack of significance, even when the differences in means seem reasonably large, is due most probably to a combination of reduced sample sizes and large standard deviations. Table 2. Means and Standard Deviations for Spelling and Word Identification Variables Across Grades Grade Spelling Level Immediate Level Total Level (70%) Total Level (50%) ALL N=80 (1.89) (2.45) (2.43) (2.62) TWO N=27 (1.47) (2.02) (1.77) (1.89) THREE N=37 (1.78) (1.91) (2.09) (2.37) FOUR N=16 (2.12) (2.10) (2.28) (2.08) Correlations among Spelling and the Word Identification variables were all significant (p<.05) and high, from.74 to.86, indicating a strong relationship between spelling and word identification variables, as found in other studies.

4 Table 3. Correlations Between Spelling and Word Identification Variables Across Grades Grade Spelling by Immediate Spelling by Total (70%) Spelling by Total (50%) ALL N=80 TWO N=27 THREE N=37 FOUR N=16 An examination of the frequency counts for the possible combinations of accurate identification and spelling shows that across specific word lists and for the sample as a whole, only a very small percentage of words were spelled correctly but not identified correctly, the condition that would be counter to developmental expectations. These percentages remain low even when the extreme cases of either no accuracy in any case or accuracy in all three conditions are removed from the counts and percentages. Table 4. Frequency Counts of Spelling (S), Immediate Identification (I) and Total Identification (T) Combinations Across Subjects (N=128) S I T Number Percent of Total Percent Eliminating 000 and % % 13% % 77% % 4% % 6% %

5 Correlations for relative word ease/difficulty across measures on selected lists are also significant (p<.05) high, and positive. This suggests that, over all, the same words that are easy/difficult to identify are the same words that are easy/difficult to spell. Table 5. Word Difficulty Correlations For Spelling, Immediate Identification, And Total Identification Instructional Level: None Two Two List: N: Spelling by Immediate: Spelling by Total: Conclusions Findings from this study support earlier work that established high correlations between spelling and word identification variables when the same lists are used for both. Frequency counts of possible spelling and word identification combinations confirm the direction of relationships predicted by developmental theory. Word ease/difficulty correlations and comparisons indicate close relationships, not only overall, but also at the word level. Further, these connections were found using a sample of students with different demographic profiles and somewhat different performance patterns on these measures than those used in earlier studies, thus strengthening the case for viewing spelling and word identification as closely related manifestations of underlying word knowledge. Differences among spelling instructional level and word identification levels increased as grade level increased (Table 2). This makes sense because as words become less frequent, they also tend to become longer. This makes them easier to identify using partial cues, but harder to spell because there are more letters to get right, at least one of which may represent an unaccented vowel or silent consonant. (e.g., is it seperate or separate?). Thus readers without full word representations gain more quickly in identification than they do in spelling. But at the same time, correlations between spelling and word identification remained quite high (Table 3), an indication that these aspects of word knowledge are still closely related, that is, better word readers are better spellers.
