PAZETO, Talita de Cassia Batista; LEON, Camila Barbosa Riccardi  y  SEABRA, Alessandra Gotuzo. Assessment of reading and writing preliminary skills at the beginning of literacy. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.104, pp. 137-147. ISSN 0103-8486.

Preliminary reading and writing skills include the ability to recognize alphabet letters and sounds and the ability to encode and decode isolated letters, syllables, or words. Evidence suggests that its acquisition is determinant for subsequent academic success throughout basic education, reiterating the importance of early evaluation. Considering the scarcity of national assessment instruments, the objective of this study is to present and to provide the Reading and Writing Test (RWT) and the Letter and Sound Recognition Task (TRLS) as a standardized alternative for the evaluation of preliminary reading and writing skills for children early in literacy. Participants were 90 children, with an average age of 4.91 years, enrolled in Kindergarten I and II of a private school in the central region of São Paulo city. For the written language evaluation, the RWT and the TRLS were used. For the oral language skills evaluation, four instruments were used: The Phonological Awareness Test by Oral Production, the Peabody Image Vocabulary Test, the Child Naming Test and Pseudowords and Words Repetition Test. The results corroborate the literature of the area, evidencing that oral and written language skills tend to increase with school progression and that they are statistically associated intra and between domains. With this study, we hope to contribute to the evaluation and identification of impairments in reading and writing skills at the beginning of literacy and, as a consequence, the introduction of interventions at early ages.
