What are reading comprehension?

Reading comprehension is the ability to understand and make use of information that is read. This includes being able to read accurately, fluently, and with understanding. Good reading comprehension skills are essential for success in school and in everyday life.

There are a number of strategies that can be used to improve reading comprehension. These include:

  • Finding a quiet place to read where you will not be interrupted
  • Previewing the material before you read it, looking at the title, pictures, and headings
  • Skimming the material quickly to get an idea of what it is about
  • Reading aloud to yourself or someone else


When students are good at reading comprehension, they can better understand the information in their textbooks and class lectures. This allows them to do better on tests and quizzes. Additionally, good reading comprehension skills can help students better understand the world around them.

It is for all grades

Reading comprehension skills are important for students of all ages. However, they are especially important for young students, who are just learning to read. Additionally, reading comprehension skills become increasingly important as students progress through school and into higher grades. By the time students reach college, they should be able to read and comprehend complex texts.

Skillful readers use a variety of strategies to understand what they read. These strategies include things like identifying the main idea of a text, making inferences, and drawing conclusions. Good readers also pay attention to detail and use context clues to help them understand unfamiliar words.
