Abstract

Mixture modelling was used to examined the : (a)heterogeneity and prevalence of the language and literacy profiles among 521 first grade students (Malaysian equivalent of primary 1) and (b) predictors that optimize the classification of language and literacy profiles were identified. These were students with: a) the weakest performance on average in literacy but slightly higher language skills,b) weak performance in both language and literacy, and e)the strongest performance in language and literacy. Unique predictors of class membership differentiation, for all groups were phonological awareness, teacher judgement on academic achievement, and socioeconomic status.
