Abstract

Relations between Reading Behaviour and Educational Scores of Children

Relations between Reading Behaviour and Educational Scores of Children

A survey (N = 515) was conducted to investigate the relation between the reading behaviour of children and their scores on the Dutch Cito elementary-test (designed to assess their level of education). Results indicate that there is a significant correlation between the reading frequency and Cito scores, mediation analyses confirmed that the relation is mediated by reading comprehension. Frequently reading challenging books appears to be the best predictor for educational achievement.
