Topping, Keith J.; Paul, Terry D.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v15 n3 p213-31 Jul-Sep 1999
Explores the relationship between practice at reading, student reading performance, and organizational features using data from a computer-assisted student self-assessment of reading comprehension program (The Accelerated Reader). Finds student reading ability strongly positively related to amount of in-school reading practice; amount of reading practice negatively correlated with school size; and more reading practice occurred in private than public schools.
