The thesis deals with the comprehension of the text in terms of listening and oral reading. The rigorous thesis is traditionally divided into a theoretical and empirical part. The first part of the thesis presents the theoretical background of research issues of understanding the read and listened text with a focus on comparing these skills from the perspective of Czech and foreign studies. Attention is also focused on the text properties affecting reading comprehension, as well as the diagnostics of reading and assumptions that are reflected in the reader's understanding. The focus of this thesis is its empirical part, which compares the conclusions of its own research with the results of the three-year research project GAČR - Reading comprehension - typical development and its risk. The rigorous work responds to the conclusions of the above-mentioned research project, which came to different conclusions than international research studies. The main goal of the presented thesis is to clarify the cause of this difference. One of the considered factors is the different level of the comprehension texts. The research...

Medřická, Tereza ; Kucharská, Anna (advisor) ; Špačková, Klára (referee) ; Bytešníková, Ilona (referee)
In the context of both projects Enhancing literacy development in European languages, work package 2 and The early literacy development and its variability in children at risk of specific learning disabilities, we monitored child development of literacy in preschool age and during the first years of school attendance in a four-stage process. The research group (n = 76) compound of typically developing children (BV = 37), children with the family risk of dyslexia (RR = 22) and children with specific language impairment (NVŘ = 17). We evaluated development of phonemic/phonological, lexical/semantic and morphological/syntactic skills, preliteracy skills and early literacy skills. The last fifth test stage included the assessment of literacy development in 3rd graders. First, a group of children with literacy deficits (n = 9) was identified via the latent profile analysis method. Subsequently, four predictive models of literacy deficits for each stage were created by means of lasso or L-1 penalized regression method. Predictive models follows the trend that until literacy skills are fully automatized (preschool age and the 1st grade), phonemic and phonological skills predominate, but later - after the formal learning to read and write proceeds - early literacy skills are becoming more and more...
