Understanding a text. : A case study of reading comprehension in grade 4 (English)
Abstract [en]

The study has three different aims. One is to investigate reading comprehension among

pupils in grade 4. Another is to trace any difficulties in reading comprehension to

linguistic or social difficulties. The study also has a practical purpose in that the

problems that exist can be identified and diagnosed earlier so that these pupils can be

given extra support.

The pupils’ reading comprehension has been tested with texts from their schoolbooks.

Three different types of questions have been asked about the content of the texts. The

pupils’ decoding ability has been tested with a letter and word-chain test and word

comprehension with words from their schoolbook texts.

The pupils who were tested are in grade 4 in a school in southern Sweden. There are

three classes with a total of 59 pupils, of whom 48 participated in the study.

It turns out that there are deficiencies in reading comprehension in several pupils in

grade 4. The pupils have great problems with questions which require them to read

several lines before they find the answer and with questions where they have to draw

their own conclusions and use previous knowledge they were expected to have.
