Reading Comprehension Across National Boundaries.
Thorndike, Robert L.
Some aspects of the results from IEA studies of reading are discussed. The instruments used in the studies were a reading comprehension test of the conventional type and a short reading speed test. The studies were conducted with 10- and 14-year-olds and individuals in the last year of secondary school. A supplementary measure, Same-Opposite vocabulary test of 40 words, was also used at each level. Among the 15 countries that participated, 12 different languages were represented. Difficulties encountered, results for the United States, between-country differences, and between-schools differences are discussed. Predictors of reading achievement are discussed from the standpoint of their effectiveness. (DB)
