Comprehension: An Elusive Concept.
Robinson, H. Alan
This paper provides a brief survey of current theory concerning reading comprehension and suggests that the role of the reader's knowledge has been largely neglected. Factors that influence the assessment of information or idea gain are the nature of the learner, the nature of the material, the nature of the purposes for reading, and the means used for measurement. Six implications for instruction are illuminated, spanning such topics as integration of learning experiences in various situations, the level of familiarity of reading materials, and the type of questioning used in evaluation of reading comprehension.
