Spelling is an important linguistic skill that is frequently overlooked by SLPs during a comprehensive language assessment. In this study, the authors present a spelling coding rubric that accounts for different knowledge types needed for spelling and can be used to describe error patterns for both encoding and decoding as part of the writing process. This study demonstrated feasibility of a spelling coding rubric for describing spelling error patterns in intermediate-grade students' writing samples across first drafts and final copies.


This course is offered for 0.10 ASHA CEUs
(Intermediate Level, Professional Area).
