Reading is a learned skill needed for life. It requires cognitive processing increasing with practice. This study examined the use of colored paper for comprehension and vocabulary assessments given to fifty-one fourth graders for the purpose of increasing test scores. All fourth grade students received weekly comprehension and vocabulary assessments on either goldenrod, Astrobright blue, green, or white paper for a period of one month. Scores were compared weekly on each color and results showed there was no color effect for either comprehension or vocabulary.
