Effects of inconsistent information on text processing : evidence for comprehension monitoring by Linda Baker( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expository passages containing either main point inconsistencies, detail inconsistencies, or no inconsistencies were presented sentence by sentence to 90 college students. Subjects read through the passages at their own pace and were encouraged to reread sections of text whenever they wished. As expected, subjects spent more time on sentences containing information that conflicted with information presented elsewhere, and they looked back more often at inconsistent sentences. These modifications in processing indicated that the subjects monitored their comprehension as they were reading, actively evaluating whether the ideas expressed in the text were consistent with one another. Several postreading measures provided additional support for this conclusion. The relationship between reading behavior and subsequent identification of the inconsistencies was also examined. Large individual differences were found both in processing strategies and in confusion detection. (Author)
Children's effective use of multiple standards for evaluating their comprehension by Linda Baker( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two experiments examined children's ability to apply three different standards for evaluating their understanding. Five-, seven-, nine-, and eleven-year-old children were presented with short narrative passages within which were embedded three types of problems (nonsense words, internal inconsistencies, and prior knowledge violations), each of which could only be identified if a specific standard of evaluation were used (lexical, internal consistency, and external consistency, respectively). Since the focus of the study was on the effectiveness with which children could apply the standards, rather than on the likelihood that they would spontaneously adopt and then apply them, the subjects were explicitly instructed in advance that their task was to find the "mistakes." Moreover, the subjects were given immediate feedback after each trial and a second opportunity to find any missed problems. Although older children used all three standards more effectively than younger children, overall problem identification was considerably better than that reported in non-instructed settings. The internal consistency standard was applied least effectively, but even the youngest children were able to use it. The results illustrate the need to consider comprehension monitoring skills with respect to specific standards of evaluation, rather than as a unitary phenomenon. (Author)

Differences in the standards used by college students to evaluate their comprehension of expository prose by Linda Baker( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

College students differing in verbal ability read and evaluated their comprehension of expository passages. Three different types of problems were embedded within the passages to provide opportunities for students to reveal the use of different standards of evaluation. Half of the subjects were informed that they should use three particular standards in order to identify the problems (lexical, external consistency, and internal consistency); the remaining subjects were not given specific information as to the standards they should use. All problems subjects identified were classified as to the type of standard they reflected. The classification scheme consisted of the three targeted standards plus syntax, propositional cohesiveness, structural cohesiveness, and informational completeness. Of particular concern were differences in the standards adopted by students receiving specific instructions and those receiving general instructions. Use of the lexical standard did not differ with instructional specificity, suggesting that students spontaneously evaluate their understanding of individual words. Students receiving general instructions rarely used the external and internal consistency standards, suggesting these are not criteria students typically adopt. Instead, they commented frequently on the structural cohesiveness of the passages. Students with higher verbal ability exhibited more frequent and more varied standard use than those with lower verbal ability. (Author)

Spontaneous versus instructed use of multiple standards for evaluating comprehension : effects of age, reading proficiency, and type of standard by Linda Baker( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fourth and sixth grade children differing in reading proficiency read and commented on brief expository passages containing three different types of embedded problems (nonsense words, prior knowledge violations, and internal inconsistencies). Half of the children were specificially instructed as to the types of standards they should apply in order to detect the problems (lexical, external consistency, and internal consistency); the remaining children were simply instructed to look for problems. Both quantitative and qualitative differences in standard use were revealed by the children's comments about all parts of the passages. Older and better readers used more different standards and they used them more frequently than younger and poorer readers. The lexical standard was more likely to be adopted spontaneously than the other two standards and it was the only standard used by a substantial proportion of both younger and poorer readers. The results demonstrate that children differ in their ability to decide for themselves whether or not they understand but that their performance depends in part on the amount of guidance they are given.
