The Effect of Feedback on the Illusion of Knowing and Comprehension Monitoring of College Students.
Ward, Sandra Brubaker; Clark, Henry T., III
A study investigated the effect of providing students with varying forms of feedback during reading on students' estimates of understanding, actual comprehension scores, and students' use of rereading and reading rate adjustment. The 67 subjects were presented with passages to read, and their reading behavior was monitored via computer. Although students became more accurate in their estimates of understanding across the four passage segments (reduced illusion of knowing), results indicated no effects of feedback on either comprehension or the processing measures. Findings suggest the relative resistance of metacognitive aspects of reading to short-term intervention among practiced readers. (Six tables of data are included. (MG)
