The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is a correlation between students’ reading ability and their intrinsic motivation to read. The study participants included a group of 21 second graders and used data from both the Fountas and Pinnell Running Records levels as well as the Reading Attitude Survey. There was not found to be a strong connection between the two variables, but more information was found to help the researcher understand what helps keep students motivated to read.
