Reader Beliefs and Meaning Construction in Narrative Text.
Schraw, Gregory
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n1 p96-106 Mar 2000
Examines how transmission and transaction beliefs about reading affect comprehension, engagement, and holistic understanding of narrative texts with undergraduate college students (N=247). Transaction beliefs were related positively to the type and number of reader responses as well as to the sophistication of one's holistic interpretation. Transmission beliefs were unrelated to all outcome measures. (Author/MKA)
