Professor Max Coltheart drew these note-worthy figures to the attention of people via Twitter:

tinyurl.com/ydxmlara Fig 4.5:Year 1 Phonics Check performance almost perfect predictor of Yr 5 PIRLS reading performance. E.g. children scoring 10/48 on phonics check got 500 on PIRLS, those scoring 32/40 on check got 555. Hard to imagine better vindication of phonics check.

Troubling trends:

An international decline in attitudes toward reading



https://www.iea.nl/sites/default/files/ ... trends.pdf


SUMMARY

• Trend results from the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) show a decline from 2001 through 2016 in most countries in fourth graders’ and their parents’ reading attitudes, as measured by students like reading and parents like reading scale scores.
• Average students like reading scale scores, as reported by the students themselves, decreased between 2001 and 2016 in 13 of the 18 countries that participated in all cycles of PIRLS.
• Students like reading scores, on average, only increased in England and Iran between 2001 and 2016 and remained essentially constant in the United States, New Zealand, and Hong Kong.
• Parents like reading scores, on average, also decreased in 14 of the 16 countries that participated in all cycles of PIRLS.
