Reading Subskills and Success in the College Freshman Year.
Moore, Kenneth Thompson
A sample of 188 freshman students was tested for ability in seven areas of reading, prior to the beginning of the academic year; their scores were later related to the cumulative grade point average (CGPA) for their freshman year. Significant correlations were found between CGPA and vocabulary, reflective comprehension, total comprehension, and total reading ability; no significant correlations were found between CGPA and reading rate, recall comprehension, or reading efficiency and success. Reflective comprehension was the best single predictor of CGPA, but no subskill predicted more than 13% of CGPA. Comparisons between students in the top and bottom quarters on CGPA indicated significant differences in group means for vocabulary, reflective comprehension, total comprehension, and total reading ability.
