© 2017. This poster session will describe a study that took place at a university in the United Arab Emirates. The study included a reading app that was downloaded onto each student' individual mobile device. Students could read while listening to the stories. The primary goal of the study was to determine how, if at all, listening while reading in a potentially ubiquitous manner impacted their reading ability, particularly fluency and rate. The study was mixed method and included in ABBA design as well as qualitative questions. Data is still being analyzed.
