The Assessment of Children's Literacy
Young Sil Kim
The purpose of this study was to assess children`s literacy in Korea. The subjects were 147 children aged 3 to 5 in Iksan and Chonju. For the assessment of children`s literacy, the revised form of WLAT(Written Language Awareness Test) (Taylor & Blum, 1980) and 「The Concept About Books Interview」 designed for this study were used. The test scores and oral responses of the children were analyzed by frequencies, means, χ² test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson`s r, and Scheffe′-test. The findings Showed that : (1) the children had more awareness about the mapping principles between speech and print, and the context of sentence than about technical aspects of the written language, and (2) the children had a low awareness of the ultimate function of books. Younger children recognized a hook as a play instrument, whereas older ones saw it as a decoding instrument.
