Online Reading Practices of Students Who Are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
Donne, Vicki; Rugg, Natalie
Deafness & Education International, v17 n3 p144-154 2015
This study sought to investigate reading perceptions, computer use perceptions, and online reading comprehension strategy use of 26 students who are deaf/hard of hearing in grades 4 through 8 attending public school districts in a tri-state area of the U.S. Students completed an online questionnaire and descriptive analysis indicated that students liked to read information online and that they felt this was an easy task. Results further revealed moderate use of comprehension strategies. The highest reported usage of comprehension strategies with online text were Problem Solving strategies and the lowest reported usage were Support strategies. Relationships were found between strategies reported to be used and several demographic variables, participants' perceptions of themselves as a reader, and perceptions of the task of reading online text.
