Process-based assessment of multiple documents comprehension

(Multiple Documents Literacy)

In the project MultiTex, a computer-based instrument to assess the competence of text comprehension with multiple documents (multiple documents literacy, MDL) of university students is developed and validated. A special methodological focus lies in the usage of additional process-based diagnostics. Accordingly, in this project process-based measures are used, first, as additional diagnostic information; second, in order to identify strategies of processing multiple documents; and third, to test theories of multiple text comprehension.

The aims of the present project can be characterized as follows:

  • Development of a theoretically sound computer-based test of multiple documents literacy (MDL)
  • Analysis of processes of multiple text comprehension for advanced diagnostics
  • Construct validation of the MDL text with two cohorts of university students of two subject groups at two locations
  • Empirical test of assumptions of theories of multiple documents comprehension
