Sample text

It is necessary to remember and m ­ anipulate information, to know what individual words mean and to be motivated to understand). Not all of the processes involved can be easily measured by a comprehension test. Consequently, the factors influencing a child’s score on a reading comprehension measure (on a given day) may be different to the factors influencing another child’s score, even though they both may be classed as ‘poor comprehenders’. For ­ example, Sabrina has difficulty connecting ideas in text and doesn’t enjoy reading, whereas Adam loves to read but struggles to remember story events and often doesn’t realise when his understanding is breaking down.

Working memory processes may be important for text comprehension, because reading involves holding information in mind about what has just been read while continuing to decode upcoming words and to integrate this new information with what has gone before. It follows that a possible cause of reading comprehension difficulty is a working memory problem. A variety of tasks have been used to investigate the working memory skills of poor comprehenders. In one classic working memory task ­(listening span) a child hears a series of short sentences and is asked to decide if each one is true or false.

The poor comprehenders also performed more poorly on a working memory task; however, despite working memory being linked to comprehension monitoring, it could not fully explain the results of the error detection task. Together these findings suggest that comprehension monitoring contributes to reading comprehension ability in its own right (not just because it involves working memory). Oakhill and colleagues suggest that poor comprehenders are unable to build rich mental models of the text they are reading and this in turn affects their ability to monitor comprehension.
