Effects Academic performance Homework research dates back to the early s.
By age 15, this has resulted in a difference of 5,—6, words between each level, and children who read "lots" have almost double the vocabulary of children who read "not much". Obviously, this will affect school performance, SAT scores, and so on — and it's a difference accumulated throughout all of childhood.
However, keep in mind that these learning "rates" are based only on averages across all our survey respondents — they are not representative of the population as a whole.
Also, the rates are "average" only — we also don't have enough data to separate them out into percentiles yet. So, what's the biggest takeaway from this? If you're a parent, make sure your kids read, and read all they can — it will last them the rest of their lives.
Native speakers in greater detail 08 May We've previously posted on the relationship between age and vocabulary size for native speakers.
But now that it's almost two years later, and we've collected more than five times as much data, it's time to revisit the graph. The overall shape hasn't changed, of course it's just smootherbut with so much more participation, we can now calculate not just median vocabulary levels per age, but also various percentiles as well.
This gives a better idea of the distribution of vocabulary sizes among survey participants. So here is the crown jewel of our results: To give you an idea of just how much data is compressed into this single graphic, there are over 20, respondents which alone make up just the single age of 21, with over 2, for each point in the percentile lines.
Now, remember that these percentiles are not for the population as a whole, but rather just those who have taken the test online.
Comparing with self-reported SAT scores from previous analysis, overall participation is in roughly the 98th percentile of the American population as a whole — it is apparently a very "elite" group of people who spend their time taking vocabulary tests on the Internet!
But regardless, it's fascinating to see how test-takers age 50, for example, range from slightly over 20, words 10th percentileto slightly over 30, words medianto nearly 40, words 90th percentile. You'll also notice how we've cut off some of the percentile lines, restricting them to only a subset of ages.
This is because data was too noisy in these areas. Both tests are geared towards advanced learners of English, since they're designed especially to gauge ability to perform at university level. And here is how their scores correlate with vocabulary sizes: Note that TOEFL scores are rounded to the nearest 10, so a score of on the paper exam actually includes scores in the range — and the "impossible" score of is actually — In all three tests, we've cut off lower levels of scores where we had less data they also tended to be relatively flat.
Finally, note that the very highest score of each test "jumps" quite far up relative to the rest — this is to be expected, since the highest score includes people who would score even higher if the test examined even more difficult English.
While there's nothing particularly unexpected from this data, it is interesting to see that the three exams basically cover vocabulary ranges from lower-advanced around 6, to lower-native around 20, — which makes sense, since the tests are geared towards university admissions.
Of course, the tests evaluate far more than just vocabulary, and include things like grammar, listening, and writing — which are not reflected in the TestYourVocab quiz.
New hosting, new results, new site language 06 May It's been over a year and a half since we last posted, and while we've been working on other projects, we're pleased to announce that, since we started, we've had over two million completed vocabulary surveys from around the world!
As of this exact moment, it's 2, And so we have some announcements to make: We've had problems where the site was inaccessible for hours or even days at a time. We've installed monitoring tools as well, so we should be able to respond faster to outages.
With all the new data, we've decided it's finally time to add new analysis. Stay tuned, we've got a few new posts coming in the next few days. To better capture results from foreign learners of English, particularly at the lower end, we've introduced a version of the site in Portuguese for Brazilians, one of the largest EFL markets in the world.
It still tests English vocabulary, but all the instructions and survey questions are in Portuguese. If you're Brazilian and want to help us translate the FAQ or nitty-gritty details page, please get in touch!

This article starts with an assumption and an admission. The assumption is that there is a positive correlation between student engagement (in courses and through extracurricular and co-curricular activities), student success, and strong retention and graduation rates. The admission is that, while our Georgetown School of Continuing Studies has strong course-and-program rates that we can [ ].
