Abstract: The current study aimed at investigating the effect of reading level of students in multiple-grade classes of Sardasht region of Dezful province on their academic achievements in mathematics and science. The design of the study was pre-experimental; thus, 42 individuals of the students were selected from the student population of elementary schools of Sardasht-e-Dezful region using convenient sampling and they were placed in two experimental and control groups randomly. Data collection tools included a researcher-made questionnaire to determine the reading level and data obtained from it were analyzed using SPSS, version 22, software. The results of statistical tests of independent t-test showed that there was a significant difference between academic achievement scores of mathematics and science of students who had received reading trainings and those who had not received them, Moreover, the results indicated that the effect of gender was significant in this relation regarding mathematic lesson and it was insignificant regarding science lesson. In other words, these results cause girl students obtain higher means in mathematics compared to boy students. Therefore, it is required that educational authorities consider the increase of reading level of students specially boy students
