An Investigation of Growth in Critical Reading Ability in Grades Four, Five and Six.
Gall, Stefanie Swindle
This study investigated the relationships between critical reading ability and sex, intelligence, and reading achievement and the differences in critical reading ability of students from grades four to five to six. A 30-item Intermediate Critical Reading Test (ICRT) developed by the investigator on a 3.5 or below readability level, the California Short-Form Test of Mental Maturity, and the California Reading Achievement Test were administered to 537 fourth, fifth, and sixth graders from three Florida elementary schools. Significant differences were found in the critical reading ability of fourth, fifth, and sixth graders as measured by the ICRT. Significant relationships were found between IQ and critical reading ability and between reading achievement and critical reading ability. No significant difference was found between sexes in critical reading ability. (TO)
