LUCIO, Patrícia Silva; LIMA, Thatiana Helena de; JESUINO, Ana Deyvis Santos Araújo  and  RUEDA, Fabián J. M.. Reading comprehension and morphological awareness in elementary school children. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.3, suppl.1, pp. 112-131. ISSN 2236-6407.

The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of age and schooling in performance in reading comprehension and morphological awareness, as well as the predictive power of morphological awareness in reading comprehension. Students (n = 403) from 2nd to 9th year of Elementary School (cycles 1 and 2) of a city in the state of Paraná participated of the study (54.3% female). As instruments, the Cloze Test (text "Unfortunate revenge") and Morphological Consciousness Assessment Tasks were administered. The results showed that both reading comprehension and morphological awareness have a developmental influence, and that morphological awareness can predict between 23% and 34% of reading comprehension.

Keywords : Cloze test; reading comprehension; reading; morphological awareness; prediction.
