Formatted abstract
This study examined performance in metacognitive knowledge, motivation, word identification and reading comprehension of 139 Grade 3 (9 years old) and 4 (10 years old) Australian male and female pupils. Initially, we investigated the role of word identification, metacognitive knowledge, and motivation in predicting reading comprehension, as a function of gender effects, before we examined possible interrelationships among the predictor variables using structural equation modelling. The main result indicated that word identification had the greatest influence on reading comprehension in this sample. The model fit the data set, with a strong relationship between word identification and reading comprehension. The results are discussed in terms of the impact of word identification on reading. Implications for practice are suggested.
