Many secondary school students have insufficient reading and writing skills. They have trouble with comprehending information from schoolbooks, for example, or producing an intelligible piece of writing. This results in disappointing educational achievement and reduced motivation. Through a number of studies, Mirjam Trapman investigates associations between knowledge and fluency on the one hand and the development of students’ levels of reading comprehension and writing proficiency on the other. Her research forms part of the project Study into Adolescent Literacy of Students At-Risk (SALSA), funded by the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).
