Reading comprehension

Reading comprehension is defined as the level of understanding of a text. This understanding comes from the interaction between the words that are written and how they trigger knowledge outside the text.

Proficient reading depends on the ability to recognize words quickly and effortlessly.

If word recognition is difficult, students use too much of their processing capacity to read individual words, which interferes with their ability to comprehend what is read.Comprehension
