dc.description.abstractThis study quantitatively examined the relationship between phonemic awareness training and the phonemic awareness of the trained subjects. Eighteen studies were coded for continuous and categorical moderator variables.

The overall weighted mean effect was strong. Differences between the subgroups within Approach of Training were significant, favoring segmenting/blending training. Differences in Outcome Measures were also significant. The strongest effect size for Outcome Measures was Combination Measures.

Minutes per Training Session and Total Minutes in Training were negatively and significantly correlated with effect sizes. As training time increased, effect sizes tended to decrease. Group Size was inversely and significantly correlated with phonemic awareness. After controlling for group size, Total Minutes in Training remained negatively and significantly related to effect size.
