National mandates and student population changes increase the need for appropriate reading assessment of Spanish speaking students (IDEA, 2004; USDE, 2003; 2004). We felt with these national mandates, such as No Child Left Behind, more research on SD students reading fluency and comprehension on English and Spanish passages should be examined (USDE, 2003; 2004). English Dominant and Spanish Dominant speaking students' oral reading fluency and comprehension performance were assessed in both English and Spanish to see if oral reading fluency and comprehension were related for these participants, and measures. Results indicate statistically significant correlations between oral reading fluency and comprehension in Spanish and English for dominant English and Spanish speaking students.Compared to national norms (www.aimsweb.com), SD students performed below national norms, however, given this ... The first grade SD students scored high on the English comprehension passages (M=8.6), the second grade cohortsa#39;anbsp;...
