De Smedt, Fien; Merchie, Emmelien; Barendse, Mariska; Rosseel, Yves; De Naeghel, Jessie; Van Keer, Hilde – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
In the past, several assessment reports on writing repeatedly showed that elementary school students do not develop the essential writing skills to be successful in school. In this respect, prior research has pointed to the fact that cognitive and motivational challenges are at the root of the rather basic level of elementary students' writing…

Amendum, Steven J.; Bratsch-Hines, Mary; Vernon-Feagans, Lynne – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the Targeted Reading Intervention (TRI), a professional development and early reading intervention program delivered via webcam technology, could support the early reading progress of English learners (ELs). Participants for the current study were drawn from a larger three-year randomized…

Cho, Byeong-Young; Woodward, Lindsay; Li, Dan – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
This study examines how the beliefs that adolescent readers hold about knowledge and knowing are activated during online reading. The research questions center on the pattern of these readers' epistemic processes through which more or less productive learning occurs. High school students performed a critical online reading task on a controversial…

Meneses, Alejandra; Uccelli, Paola; Santelices, María Verónica; Ruiz, Marcela; Acevedo, Daniela; Figueroa, Javiera – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
Although literacy achievement has improved in Chile, adolescents' underperformance in reading comprehension is still a serious concern. In English, core academic-language skills (CALS) have been found to significantly predict reading comprehension, even controlling for academic vocabulary knowledge. CALS are high-utility language skills that…

Boardman, Alison G.; Boelé, Amy L.; Klingner, Janette K. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
This study examined how teacher and student interactions were influenced by a multistrategy reading model, Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR), where students learn to apply before-, during-, and after-reading strategies in small cooperative learning groups. Five middle school English language arts teachers and their students (N = 184)…

Kalindi, Sylvia C.; McBride, Catherine; Dan, Lin – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
Considering the importance attached to writing as a life skill, this study investigated the nature and variability of adults' aid to Zambian second graders in the context of shared writing in Bemba (first language), and the relations between this support and students' literacy and cognitive-metalinguistic skills. Fifty-seven children and their…

D'Agostino, Jerome V.; Rodgers, Emily; Mauck, Susan – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
The authors used nationally based, random sample data from three different years (2009-2010, 2011-2012, and 2014-2015) for nearly 20,000 first-grade students (n = 9,760, 3,657, and 3,121, respectively) to examine long-reported inadequacies of a commonly used early literacy assessment tool, the Observation Survey of Early Literacy Achievement…

Foster, Tori E.; Ardoin, Scott P.; Binder, Katherine S. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
Although strong claims have been made regarding the educational utility of eye tracking, such statements seem somewhat unfounded in the absence of clear evidence regarding the technical adequacy of eye movement (EM) data. Past studies have yielded direct and indirect evidence concerning the utility of EMs as measures of reading, but recent…

Hiebert, Elfrieda H.; Goodwin, Amanda P.; Cervetti, Gina N. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
This study addresses the distribution of words in texts at different points of schooling. The first aim was to identify a core vocabulary that accounts for the majority of the words in texts through the lens of morphological families. Results showed that 2,451 morphological families, averaging 4.61 members, make up the core vocabulary of school…

Gouldthorp, Bethanie; Katsipis, Lia; Mueller, Cara – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
To date, little is known about the high-level language skills and cognitive processes underlying reading comprehension in children. The present study aimed to investigate whether children with high, compared with low, reading comprehension differ in their sequencing skill, which was defined as the ability to identify and recall the temporal order…

Litman, Cindy; Greenleaf, Cynthia – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
This study drew on observations of 40 secondary English language arts, history, and science lessons to describe variation in opportunities for students to engage in argumentation and possible implications for student engagement and learning. The authors focused their analysis on two broad dimensions of argumentation tasks: (1) "Instructional…

The present study investigated the relation among reading skills and attributions, naming speed, and phonological awareness across a wide range of reading skill. Participants were 1,105 school-age children and youths from two understudied populations: African Americans and Hispanic Americans. Individual assessments of children ranging in age from…

Reynolds, Dan; Daniel, Shannon – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
Although much research exists on scaffolding in reading instruction, confusion about the construct persists. In this commentary inspired by a recent article in "Reading Research Quarterly," we argue for the importance of contingency--that is, responsiveness to student thinking--in reading comprehension scaffolding. We begin by defining…

Gross, Jennifer; Winegard, Bo; Plotkowski, Andrea R. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
Spoken English has a stress-alternating rhythm that is not marked in its orthography. In two experiments, the authors evaluated whether stylistic alterations to print that marked stress pulses fostered the rendering of rhythm (experiment 1) and stress (experiment 2) during silent reading. In experiment 1, silent readers rated the helpfulness of…

Bråten, Ivar; McCrudden, Matthew T.; Stang Lund, Elisabeth; Brante, Eva W.; Strømsø, Helge I. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
This study investigated the effects of author expertise and content relevance on Norwegian secondary school students' (n = 190) selection, processing, and use of multiple documents. Participants were presented with documents that pertained to more or less familiar topics, and received brief instructions that highlighted the importance of source…
