Chen, Ru San; Vellutino, Frank R.
Journal of Literacy Research, v29 n1 p1-24 Mar 1997

Support the idea that reading comprehension ability can be decomposed into decoding and listening comprehension abilities, but does not support the assumption that most of the substantive variance in reading comprehension can be explained by the multiplicative combination of decoding and listening comprehension.
