Examining Students' After-School Literacy Activities and Their Literacy Performance on the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test
Cheng, Liying; Klinger, Don A.; Zheng, Ying
Canadian Journal of Education, v32 n1 p118-148 2009
This study examined relationships between the after-school literacy activities and test performance of students who passed and students who failed the 2003 administration of the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. It included both students who have been in the Canadian school system for most of their school lives and mostly use English as a first language (L1), and students who have recently entered the Canadian school system and use English as a second language (L2). This study demonstrates the relatively small yet complex relationship between the test performance of these different groups of students on this literacy test and their after-school reading and writing activities. (Contains 4 tables and 5 footnotes.)
