En läsbarhetsanalys av Den magiska kulan
The aim of the study is to examine a book used as level-based teaching material, Denmagiska kulan (Wänblad, 2011), to analyse the progression within and between thedifferent levels, A, B and C, intended for use in grade 1. The material is designed so thatpupils at different levels in their reading development can share the same literature.Another aim is to study the connection between illustrations and text. This literaturestudy is based on both a qualitative and a quantitative method of analysis. Thequalitative method applies a readability analysis with the focus on the graphic form andthe language of the text. The quantitative method measures the LIX (readability index)of the texts. The result of the study shows that all the levels are suitable for grade 1since their degree of difficulty is adapted and they have a smooth progression, as well asillustrations which are closely linked to the text. Although these readers are made forthis grade, it is important that teachers scrutinize the material used in teaching.
