The Reading Profile of Turkish Primary School Students
Dag, Nilgün
International Journal of Instruction, v10 n4 p293-306 Oct 2017
This study aims to reveal the reading profile of primary school students. The research design is based on a survey model with the research population being comprised of primary school students in the 2014-2015 academic year in the city center of Nevsehir, Turkey. The sample of the study consists of 120 fourth-grade students. The research data was obtained from a two section questionnaire developed by the researcher and consisted of open-ended questions. The first section included personal questions and the second section consisted of 15 items that were expected to reflect the level of the reading profile of primary school students. The SPSS program was used to analyze the data. The results showed that almost all the children intellectually considered that reading was important and necessary; yet, they were not able to exactly reflect that thought in their actions.
