Cain, Kate and Oakhill, Jane V. and Bryant, Peter E. (2000) Investigating the causes of reading comprehension failure: the comprehension-age match design. Reading and Writing, 12 (1-2). pp. 31-40. ISSN 0922-4777
The reading-level (or reading-age) match design has become a widely-used tool for investigating the possible direction of the relation between particular skills and word reading ability: Cause or consequence. This paper outlines an analogous method for identifying candidate causes of reading comprehension failure, the ‘comprehension-age match design’ and discusses the strengths and limitations of this design.
