Abstract

PINHEIRO, Ângela Maria Vieira  and  ROTHE-NEVES, Rui. Cognitive Assessment of Reading and Writing: Reading-Aloud and Spelling Tasks. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2001, vol.14, n.2, pp. 399-408. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722001000200014.

Reading-aloud and spelling tasks using single word and nonword lists are part of a broader set of tests called Cognitive Assessment Procedure. Based on Seymour, Pinheiro developed an experimental test which seemed suitable for reading and writing assessment of first to fourth graders in Minas Gerais. That procedure was retested by Capovilla, Capovilla and Macedo. Based on those results, Pinheiro is presently involved in developing a computerized assessment procedure, which includes reading-aloud and spelling tasks, among others. This article presents the theoretical basis for the construction of single word and nonword lists, emphasizing the control of letter-sound/sound-letter regularity effect.

Keywords : Cognitive assessment; reading; writing; regularity.
