Genre Effects on Higher Education Students' Text Reading for Understanding.
Francis, Hazel; Hallam, Susan
Higher Education, v39 n3 p279-96 Apr 2000
Twenty-two graduate students in education at a British university read, answered written questions, and then discussed four text extracts from different genres (literary, theoretical, research, and statistical). Results of this study and a follow-up survey of 39 similar students suggested that text genre is a major factor in perceived difficulty of student text comprehension. Implications for instruction are drawn. (DB)
