Morris, Darrell; Trathen, Woodrow; Gill, Tom; Schlagal, Robert; Ward, Devery; Frye, Elizabeth M. – Reading Psychology, 2017
In this study we explore students' reading rates in grades 1-3. We begin with a short history of reading rate as an assessment measure in the early grades. Next, we share rate data from a recent study (N = 305) where children's contextual reading was assessed with a traditional passage-reading inventory. A comparison of our average grade-level…

National associations' recommended book lists are often used to identify books for classrooms. Previously we identified expository texts on these lists from 2001-2002 and 2011-2012. The current study explored instructional…
