A Comparison of Reading Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension Skills between Bilingual and Monolingual Czech-American Students.
Holick, Robert Joseph
This study investigated whether reading achievement differed between bilingual and monolingual students in the fifth, sixth, and seventh grades in several Texas schools where the Czech-American culture is significant. Selected bilinguals and monolinguals were compared in the factors of sex, age, grade level, reading vocabulary scores, reading comprehension scores, total reading scores, socio-economic status, and intelligence scores. An initial analysis revealed no significant differences between bilinguals and monolinguals in demographic and reading variables; sex was a significant factor in regard to the reading variables; and socio-economic status was associated with students' reading ability. The three major conclusions were that bilinguals read as well as monolinguals; females read better than males at these grade levels; and students from high socio-economic levels read better than students from low socio-economic levels.
