Title:
A cognitive processing approach towards defining reading comprehension
Authors:
Weir, Cyril J.; Khalifa, Hanan
Abstract:
In this article we focus on a cognitive processing approach as a theoretical basis for evaluating the cognitive validity of reading tests.1 This approach is concerned with the mental processes readers actually use in comprehending texts when engaging in different types of real-life reading. However, we first start by a brief review of other approaches that attempted to establish what reading comprehension really involves.
