Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn about methods to screen students for reading difficulties, including dyslexia
  2. learn about research methods used to examine the reliability and validity of newly developed measures
  3. learn how Rapid Automatized Naming, Spelling, and Vocabulary measures can be used to screen for reading difficulties


Presenters will share initial reliability and validity evidence for developed K–3 early literacy screening measures: vocabulary, spelling, and rapid automatized naming (RAN). These measures were developed to meet the growing needs of educators to screen students for reading difficulties, including difficulty related to dyslexia. Data were collected for 584 students in grades K–3 at the beginning of year (BOY), middle of year (MOY), and end of year (EOY) periods in the 2017–2018 school year.
