The aim of this study was to explore the reading comprehension of students of the elementary school from different states and schools. 1316 students from public schools in the states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Paraná participated in the study. A text of 83 words, prepared according to the Cloze technique, in its traditional version which omits all the fifth words of the text, was used. The application was collective and data were submitted to inferential and descriptive statistics. The skill of reading comprehension was instructional and there was no difference in reading comprehension considering the state and type of school. Data were discussed in terms of their implications for the psychoeducational assessment area.

Keywords : Reading; Cloze’s Technique; Reading Skills.
