Voß, Stefan; Blumenthal, Yvonne – Education Sciences, 2020
Given the high proportion of struggling readers in school and the long-term negative consequences of underachievement for those affected, the question of prevention options arises. The early identification of central indicators for reading literacy is a noteworthy starting point. In this context, curriculum-based measurements have established…

Gehlot, Lalit; Al-Khalaf, Hailah A.; Gehlot, Himani – Educational Research and Reviews, 2020
Language acquisition and memory models are created more quickly in the brain in early childhood. If reading habit is cultivated in children early, it will enhance their language skills and perception. This study aims to evaluate the conventional practices of reading habits in Indian children from lower, middle, and upper socio-economic backgrounds…

Pritchard, Verena E.; Heron-Delaney, Michelle; Malone, Stephanie A.; MacLeod, Colin M. – Child Development, 2020
The production effect--whereby reading words aloud improves memory for those words relative to reading them silently--was investigated in two experiments with 7- to 10-year-old children residing in Brisbane, Australia. Experiment 1 (n = 41) involved familiar printed words, with words read aloud or silently appearing either in mixed- or…

Lam, Elizabeth A.; Rose, Susan; McMaster, Kristen L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
This study compared the reliability and validity of student scores from paper--pencil and e-based assessments using the "maze" and "silent reading fluency" (SRF) tasks. Forty students who were deaf and hard of hearing and reading between the second and fifth grade reading levels and their teachers (n = 21) participated. For…

Allred, Johnny B.; Cena, Michael E. – Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, 2020
Research has shown that student choice of text and increased time spent on reading independently are two factors that can result in an increase in students' reading motivation and enjoyment. The authors investigated implementation of evidence-based practices to show how they played out in a high school English language arts classroom. The research…

Yildirim, Kasim; Rasinski, Timothy; Kaya, Dudu – Education 3-13, 2019
The present study attempted to extend our knowledge of the role of reading fluency in contributing to reading comprehension among Turkish students in grades 4 through 8. One hundred students at each grade level were administered assessments of reading fluency, word recognition automaticity and prosody, and silent reading comprehension. Word…

Hayden, Emily; Hiebert, Elfrieda H.; Trainin, Guy – Reading Psychology, 2019
This study examined how comprehension-based silent reading rate (CBSRR) is affected by grade, genre, and text position. Second and fourth graders read 2 grade-specific passages (one narrative, one informational) in 4 sections, each followed by 4 comprehension questions. Analyses of rate with a criterion level of comprehension showed higher…

Raspin, Sarah; Smallwood, Ruth; Hatfield, Sarah; Boesley, Lauren – Educational Psychology in Practice, 2019
Educational outcomes for looked after children (LAC) in the UK are a priority for national and local government. This study explored the impact of the ARROW literacy intervention with LAC who had been identified by their schools as requiring literacy support. ARROW is a multi-sensory, computer-based programme, designed to increase spelling and…

Lovett, Benjamin J.; Lewandowski, Lawrence J.; Carter, Lindsey – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are frequently provided a separate room in which to take exams, to reduce external distractions. However, little research has explored the efficacy of this accommodation. In the present study, college students with (n = 27) and without (n = 42) ADHD diagnoses were administered two…

Merga, Margaret Kristin – English in Education, 2019
While librarians in schools often face significant budgetary cuts, they can play an important role in supporting learning in literacy and literature. However, little is known about the practices that they may employ to this end. Of particular interest is the role of librarians in schools in supporting struggling readers, as these students may be…

Kang, Eun Young; Shin, Mikyung – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of decoding and reading fluency to reading comprehension and how it differs across different types of comprehension measures among 4th-grade students with reading difficulties and disabilities (M age = 9.8, SD = 0.6). Results indicated that decoding and reading fluency predicted 8.1% to…

Leinenger, Mallorie – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Numerous studies have provided evidence that readers generate phonological codes while reading. However, a central question in much of this research has been how early these codes are generated. Answering this question has implications for the roles that phonological coding might play for skilled readers, especially whether phonological codes…

Pan, Jinger; Yan, Ming; Laubrock, Jochen; Shu, Hua – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
What is the time course of activation of phonological information in logographic writing systems like Chinese, in which meaning is prioritized over sound? We used a manipulation of phonological regularity to examine foveal and parafoveal phonological processing of Chinese phonograms at lexical and sublexical levels during Chinese sentence reading…

Goikoetxea, Edurne; Van Bon, Wim; Fraga, Gorka; Martínez, Naroa – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2019
Introduction: Teachers and researchers often need to evaluate word decoding skill in groupwise and in a short time. The LEO-1-min test is created to measure word reading through a lexical decision procedure where the examinee identifies pseudowords in a list of frequent words. Objetive: To examine the reliability and validity of LEO-1-min, a…

Gentilini, Lara M. – ProQuest LLC, 2019
Reading interest is a significant predictor of reading achievement, with effects on both reading comprehension and vocabulary. We measured students' interest in reading as an estimate of duration of observable reading using whole intervals of silent-reading time. In Experiment 1, we assessed associations among interest in reading (i.e.,…
