Abstract


This paper presents the results of research that aimed to assess reading skills and reading comprehension for students of fourth grade. The research sample was formed of 50 students of both sexes, preserved intellectual ability, without additional motor, cognitive and sensory impairments. The largest number of respondents (60%) had a great success, a little less of those with a very good success (30%) and the least of those who had good grades (10%). For the purposes of this research were used texts in Cyrillic and Latin letters, which were unknown to the respondents. Results of the research showed that among students of the opposite sex there is no difference when it comes to speed reading comprehension in both alphabets, while among students with different academic success there is statistically significant difference in speed reading. However, the results showed that participants better understand text written in Latin. Reading is a form of learning, or instrument to learn, and its success depends on the progress and success of students in school and life.
