Title:
Investigating learners' cognitive processes during a computer-based CAE Reading test
Authors:
Bax, Stephen; Weir, Cyril J.
Abstract:
This study investigates the cognitive processes employed by participants on a computer-based CAE Reading test, with a view to assessing the cognitive validity of the Reading test items. It takes as its starting point the cognitive processing approach with its set of cognitive processes described by Khalifa and Weir (2009 Chapter 3). In addition it draws on the methods for investigating those processes adopted in Weir, Hawkey, Green and Devi’s study of academic reading in the UK (2009), and complements and extends them using onscreen recording and eye-tracking technology, as well as developing other aspects of the methodology. The central question was to what extent the test items elicited the range and level of cognitive processes expected of an advanced Reading test which seeks to emulate real-world academic reading processes.
