Research has shown that about a quarter of secondary school students fail to achieve the level of text comprehension needed to understand their school textbooks. Camille Welie investigates predictors of expository text comprehension in a sample of pupils in the second year of Dutch secondary education. He investigates whether four components of reading comprehension – knowledge of connectives, text reading fluency, text structure inference skill and reading motivation – have unique predictive value for individual differences in expository text comprehension.
