Abstract

This study utilized data from the 2016 Progress in International Reading Literacy Study to examine the effect of the frequency of tablet usage in school on children’s reading achievements. It further addressed the gender gap in achievements by exploring whether gender moderates the relationship between tablet use and achievements. The sample consisted of 3504 fourth grade students from Dutch primary schools. A multilevel model was conducted in which both student- and school-level predictors were included. Contrary to the positive effect of tablet use on reading achievements found by most previous studies, the findings suggested no relationship between tablet use and achievements. There was also no evidence found that gender moderates this relationship. Results are critically discussed and recommendations for future research are being made.
