College Students' Use of Different Standards to Evaluate Understanding.
Zabrucky, Karen; Moore, DeWayne
Reading Psychology, v17 n4 p285-307 Oct-Dec 1996
Assesses students' detection of lexical problems, falsehoods, and inconsistent textual information. Relates students' academic ranking to their evaluation performance for lexical and external consistency standards--not for internal consistency standards. Finds that alerting students to the necessity of using three standards to detect errors improved performance on problem types, but students rated their passage understanding high regardless of performance.
