Jackson, Nancy Ewald; Biemiller, Andrew J.
Child Development, v56 n1 p196-206 Feb 1985
Compared comprehension of kindergarten-age precocious readers (who read at the third-grade level) with second- and third-grade-age children. Results on measures of letter, scrambled word, and text reading times indicated that, for precocious readers, efficiency in lower-order tasks is not a prerequisite for rapid text reading and good comprehension.
