ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Azusa Pacific University
This study investigated the effect of font style and character spacing on reading performance of 25 second graders, measured by an oral reading fluency test. The effect of font type and character spacing on reading performance was analyzed with ANOVA. Font style did affect reading performance. Character spacing may be relevant for longer reading exposures, although it did not significantly affect performance or error rate for this 1-minute exposure. The current exploration investigated proficient readers and highlights potentially useful information for future research to improve student reading performance.
