Sabatini, John; Wang, Zuowei; O'Reilly, Tenaha – Reading Research Quarterly, 2019
In this secondary analysis study, the authors explored the relations between reading comprehension and oral reading performance in fourth-grade students, using a data set from the U.S. National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) special study of oral reading. The data set consisted of 1,713 students randomly selected from the 140,000 fourth…

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…

Li, Shifeng; Tao, Sha; Joshi, R. Malatesha; Xu, Qinfang – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
The authors report two studies that examined how native- and second-language skills were related to second-language reading difficulties for native Chinese-speaking fourth graders learning to read English. In study 1, 50 poor English readers with Chinese-reading difficulties (the PB group) and 34 poor English readers without Chinese-reading…

Davis, Dennis S.; Huang, Becky; Yi, Tanisha – Reading Research Quarterly, 2017
Previous research has identified various factors that contribute to readers' comprehension of expository texts, including strategy expertise, language proficiency, prior knowledge, and more recently, readers' beliefs about knowledge. This study addresses the need to understand the relative contributions of these predictors to readers'…

Hamilton, Stephen; Freed, Erin; Long, Debra L. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2016
The aim of this study was to examine predictions derived from a proposal about the relation between word-decoding skill and working memory capacity, called verbal efficiency theory. The theory states that poor word representations and slow decoding processes consume resources in working memory that would otherwise be used to execute high-level…

Mesmer, Heidi Anne E.; Williams, Thomas O. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2015
Concept of word in print is the development of an understanding of how monosyllabic and multisyllabic words operate in print. Young children show evidence of this understanding when they are able to repeat a line of text while accurately pointing to each word as it is said. A small but robust line of work has examined the knowledge, skills, and…

Gross, Jennifer; Millett, Amanda L.; Bartek, Brian; Bredell, Kyle Hampton; Winegard, Bo – Reading Research Quarterly, 2014
English speakers and expressive readers emphasize new content in an ongoing discourse. Do silent readers emphasize new content in their inner voice? Because the inner voice cannot be directly observed, we borrowed the cap-emphasis technique (e.g., "toMAYto") from the pronunciation guides of dictionaries to elicit prosodic emphasis.…

Mason, Lucia; Pluchino, Patrik; Tornatora, Maria Caterina – Reading Research Quarterly, 2013
This study investigated the effects of reading a science text illustrated by either a labeled or unlabeled picture. Both the online process of reading the text and the offline conceptual learning from the text were examined. Eye-tracking methodology was used to trace text and picture processing through indexes of first- and second-pass reading or…

Jian, Yu-Cin; Chen, Ming-Lei; Ko, Hwa-wei – Reading Research Quarterly, 2013
This study investigated context effects of online processing of Chinese academic words during text reading. Undergraduate participants were asked to read Chinese texts that were familiar or unfamiliar (containing physics terminology) to them. Physics texts were selected first, and then we replaced the physics terminology with familiar words; other…

Brusnighan, Stephen M.; Folk, Jocelyn R. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2012
In two studies, we investigated how skilled readers use contextual and morphemic information in the process of incidental vocabulary acquisition during reading. In Experiment 1, we monitored skilled readers' eye movements while they silently read sentence pairs containing novel and known English compound words that were either semantically…

Coiro, Julie; Dobler, Elizabeth – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the nature of reading comprehension processes while reading on the Internet. Eleven sixth-grade students with the highest combination of standardized reading scores, reading report card grades, and Internet reading experiences were selected from a population of 150 sixth graders in three…

Paulson, Eric J. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2005
This theoretical article examines reading processes using chaos theory as an analogy. Three principles of chaos theory are identified and discussed, then related to reading processes as revealed through eye movement research. Used as an analogy, the chaos theory principle of sensitive dependence contributes to understanding the difficulty in…

Ellis, Nick C.; Natsume, Miwa; Stavropoulou, Katerina; Hoxhallari, Lorenc; Van Daal, Victor H.P.; Polyzoe, Nicoletta; Tsipa, Maria-Louisa; Petalas, Michalis – Reading Research Quarterly, 2004
This study investigated the effects of orthographic depth on reading acquisition in alphabetic, syllabic, and logographic scripts. Children between 6 and 15 years old read aloud in transparent syllabic Japanese hiragana, alphabets of increasing orthographic depth (Albanian, Greek, English), and orthographically opaque Japanese kanji ideograms,…

Bernhardt, Elizabeth – Reading Research Quarterly, 2003
Considers if first and second language reading processes are really "the same." Discusses ways in which research designs accommodate second-language issues. Considers if a unique pedagogy for second-language readers is needed. Examines the need for future research. Represents a continued yet renewed commitment to understanding and helping users of…

Walczyk, Jeffrey J. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2000
Reviews prominent reading theories in light of their accounts of how automatic and control processes combine to produce successful text comprehension, and the trade-offs between the two. Presents the Compensatory-Encoding Model of reading, which explicates how, when, and why automatic and control processes interact. Notes important educational…
