The Progress in Internat. Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) is an assessment of the reading comprehension of students in 4th grade. In 2006, PIRLS was admin. to a nationally representative sample of 4th-grade students in the U.S., as well as to students in 44 other jurisdictions around the world. This report compares the performance of U.S. students with their peers around the world and also examines how the reading literacy of U.S. 4th-grade students has changed since 2001. Results are presented by student background characteristics (sex and race/ethnicity) and by contextual factors that may be associated with reading proficiency (school characteristics, instructional practices and teacher preparation, and the home environment for reading).
