Conceptualizing and Assessing Higher-Order Thinking in Reading
Afflerbach, Peter; Cho, Byeong-Young; Kim, Jong-Yun
Theory Into Practice, v54 n3 p203-212 2015
Students engage in higher-order thinking as they read complex texts and perform complex reading-related tasks. However, the most consequential assessments, high-stakes tests, are currently limited in providing information about students' higher-order thinking. In this article, we describe higher-order thinking in relation to reading. We provide a framework for understanding higher-order thinking in reading, in relation to relevant theories and research in reading, and standards and assessment initiatives. We conclude with the considerations in assessments of higher-order thinking in reading that can help teachers and students work toward attainment of the Common Core State Standards.
