Strategies in Solving Computer-Based Cloze: Is It Reading?
This paper reports on a project aimed at finding out what students do when working cloze passages on computer. To generate data, a computer-based cloze program, "Super Cloze," was configured so that all student keypresses would be recorded. This was worked by several classes of students at Sultan Qaboos University (Oman) during their scheduled computer lab sessions. The data reveal fresh insights into what students do when working with computer-based cloze. Following on these insights, suggestions are made for developers of computer-assisted language learning cloze programs, particularly in optimal design of help and hint features. (JL)
