Special Report: Student Comprehension of Fiction and Nonfiction on e-Readers and in Print

NA (site), NA (city),


In 2011, we published the report "Student Comprehension of Books in Kindle and Traditional Formats," which investigated student reading comprehension of fiction titles using an AmazonKindle e-reader and traditional print books (R54730). In the initial study, there was no meaningful difference in student comprehension of books read on a Kindle or in print, no matter students' level of reading achievement. This new study reveals the results of repeating the investigation while extending it to include nonfiction titles in addition to fiction.
