Reading Medium and Interest: Effects and Interactions

EasyChair Preprint no. 3645

7 pagesDate: June 19, 2020


This study’s purposes are to examine whether reading medium and interest, both individual and situational, interact to predict performance on a reading assessment and whether medium affects situational interest. College students (N = 206) reported their individual interest, were randomly assigned to read a textbook excerpt from paper or screen, and then reported their situational interest. Situational interest was more predictive of performance from screens than from paper. Medium did not influence situational interest.

Keyphrases: college students, digital reading, interest, reading medium
