Exploring Dispositions toward Online Reading: Analyzing the Survey of Online Reading Attitudes and Behaviors
Putman, S. Michael
Reading Psychology, v35 n1 p1-31 2014
The Internet is having a profound impact on the literacy practices of today's students. Acknowledging the complex processes associated with reading online, the Survey of Online Reading Attitudes and Behaviors (SORAB) was created to further our understandings in this area. A factor analysis revealed the instrument included five factors that are hypothesized to contribute to students' overall dispositions for reading online. Additional analysis revealed SORAB scores were strongly correlated with general attitudes toward technology and moderately correlated with context for Internet use. Implications are discussed in relation to future validation efforts as well as potential uses of the instrument.
