Investigated effects of inferential questioning, and of the timing of such questioning, on narrative comprehension by 4th, 7th, and 10th grade students and college students. Results indicate that as reading and language skills become more proficient and automatic, inferential questioning increasingly directs readers' attention during reading to the information targeted by the questions.
