About Reading Comprehension Test
This test will assess the candidate’s ability to understand what one reads through a combination of decoding and language fluency. This test helps individuals think critically to understand the information more deeply.
Reading comprehension occurs when readers construct meaning as they interact with the written word in an exchange of ideas between themselves and the message in the text. To comprehend text, readers rely upon their ability to decode text fluently, draw upon their extensive vocabularies, and employ comprehension skills and strategies to assist their understanding of the printed materials.
Since reading comprehension shades into learning, constructing a worldview, and discipline-specific literacy practices, it is difficult to establish firm boundaries around comprehension. This interactive process between readers and text enables readers to understand, remember, and use information read and is influenced by readers’ purpose for reading, motivation, and social context.
