Phonological Awareness (PA) and Letter Knowledge skills in kindergarten are the two best predictors of literacy. A growing concern in this country regarding poor literacy skills has led to the publication of a number of PA tests in recent years. Data are lacking regarding comparison of these tests. This study was designed to compare performances of typically developing 5- and 6-year olds on three commonly used PA tests, Pre-Reading Inventory of Phonological Awareness, Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing, and Phonological Awareness Test-2nd ed., to determine the merits of each. The results of each test will be compared on this poster.
