Past research has noted a print advantage in reading. Researchers wondered whether that would still be the case when comparing print to handheld devices. It was.
For a new study, researchers looked at 26 previous studies and a total of 25,090 students and found that differences in reading comprehension could explain 8.4 percent of the variation seen in college grades.
Kids and adults learned a similar amount if they read text or had it read to them, according to new research.
