Reading Comprehension is being tested in two ways:
Different kinds of questions:
- Closed questions
The student won't be asked to write a text, but has to show comprehension by ticking, sorting headlines, etc. .
Typical tasks: Multiple Choice, Tick the correct answer, Order the sentences, Match the Pictures to the sentences, True or False...
- Half-closed questions
Notes, single words, short answers or sentence fragments are wanted here. Typical tasks: Fill in the gaps, Correct the following statements, etc.
- Open questions
These are questions that need to be answered in full sentences.
