    Abstract

    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.
