General Visual Ability as a Moderator in the Relationship RAN–Fluency in a Regular Orthography

Revista Romaneasca pentru Educatie Multidimensionala

Abstract


Visual skills play a controversial role in the literacy process. The predictive part of RAN on fluency is known, especially in transparent spelling.

In this research, we wanted to explore the influence of visual abilities on literacy for primary school students; for this purpose, we evaluated 209 students. We tested both the Reading and decoding efficiency, rapid naming, and visual abilities. The interaction of rapid naming (RAN) and visual ability (VA) significantly determined fluency.

This association is discussed concerning other findings that have demonstrated the visuospatial abilities influence literacy.
