Locher, Franziska Maria; Becker, Sarah; Schiefer, Irene; Pfost, Maximilian – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Reading self-concept is an important predictor of reading comprehension and vice versa. However, the mechanisms that are at work in this relation have yet to be identified. In line with the self-enhancement approach, we propose that in the reading domain, amount of reading, book choice (text difficulty and book length), and intrinsic reading…

Yet, as the language level used in OER presents a barrier to many learners, there is a need to make these resources more comprehensible. This study combined eye-tracking methodology and comprehension assessment to explore the effect of text simplification on English second…

By the beginning of the 21st century, there had emerged a…
