Abstract

Reading is essential in acquiring knowledge, expanding vocabulary, and enhancing critical thinking abilities. It serves as a gateway to information and empowers individuals to engage with various forms of literature, opening doors to new worlds, perspectives, and ideas. This study aimed to determine the Reading Proficiency level and significant difference between Post-test Performance from the Previous Year and Pre-test results of the Current School Year of Grade 8 learners. The research employs a quantitative method to obtain a holistic understanding of the reading skills and competencies of Grade 8 learners. Findings revealed that post-reading of Grade 8 students last academic year is at the instructional level. Meanwhile, their pre-reading performance this academic year is also at the instructional level. The study also reveals that there is a significant difference between Post-test Performance from the Previous Year and Pre-test results of the Current School Year of Grade 8 learners. Moreover, learners have not yet reached the independent level. Furthermore, the study recommends that reading coordinators and reading teachers from school should intensify the intervention mechanism to improve reading and comprehension among students. More so, activities stipulated in Phil-IRI should be implemented with commitment among teachers to ensure proficient reading results among learners.
