Comprehension Categories for Protocol Analysis.
Fagan, William T.
Designed to interpret comprehension recalls in terms of textual information and cognitive processes used, this instrument outlines four stages for interpretive recalls, based on the premise that recall of a text results from receptive and productive processes. Stage 1 specifies which information is pertinent for analysis; stage 2 discusses the implications of which linguistic unit to use in categorizing the data; stage 3 outlines the comprehension categories; and stage 4 discusses the implications of weighting the responses assigned to categories. (This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts, Volume 2," published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. The TRIP review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (reading), title, author, date, age range (primary to postsecondary), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
