Objectives
2) To examine the impact of "self-directed learning" on students’ reading performance in Chinese and English separately. 3) To study the impact on bilingual reading performance of students’ reading habits, self-concept as readers, attitudes towards reading, teaching methods and classroom reading activities, home reading environment and parents’ attitudes toward reading will all be examined. 4) BR2016 is the fifth study in a series (following BR2004, BR2007, BR2010 and BR2013). The overall programme of research operates in a three-year cycle of assessment and will continue to measure trends and patterns in children's bilingual reading literacy attainment and their attributions such as policy and practice changes.
