There are 11 Anchor Standards for Reading. Only Standard #7 directly relates to technology. Note also that the reading standards distinguish between reading literature and reading informational text. There is a growing emphasis on the need for proficiency in reading complex informational text since most required reading in college and in the workplace is informational in structure and challenging in content. Research shows that K - 12 schools have not prepared students sufficiently in this area.

CCR Anchor Standard 7: "Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse formats and media, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words."
