Two parallel series of 12 instructional reading books were used with 36 children in three schools. These books were purposely created so that each parallel book, in sequence, introduced the same number of new words.…

Tortorelli, Laura S. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2020
Text complexity in elementary classrooms is typically measured by traditional readability tools, which rely on surface-level measures of word and sentence complexity. Theoretical and empirical work on text complexity, however, indicates that additional measures of semantics, syntax, and discourse structure may be equally important for…

Jin, Tan; Lu, Xiaofei; Ni, Jing – Modern Language Journal, 2020
An extensive body of research has investigated the role of syntactic complexity in gauging the linguistic complexity of reading texts, particularly for the purpose of determining their grade appropriateness.

Recent rapid increase in the number of Australians of Asian backgrounds has significantly altered the demographic mosaic in schools.

Since the emergence of the World Wide Web and e-reading devices in the late 1990s and early 2000s, reading research has focused on issues of website credibility, search and navigation strategies, and the ability to comprehend text on-screen as compared with in print. What has been missing, however, are data about the specific texts that…
