Title:
The cognitive processes underlying the academic reading construct as measured by IELTS
Authors:
Weir, Cyril J.; Hawkey, Roger; Green, Anthony; Devi, Sarojani
Abstract:
This study, building on CRELLA’s 2006/07 IELTS funded research, clarifies further the links between what is measured by IELTS and the construct of academic reading as practised by students in a UK university by eliciting from IELTS candidates, by means of a retrospective protocol, the reading processes they engage in when tackling IELTS Reading tasks. The study provides grounded insight into the congruence between the construct measured by IELTS and that of academic reading in the target domain
