Achievement in Comprehension Processes – ePIRLS Online Informational Reading
PIRLS reports achievement according to two overarching comprehension processes:
- Retrieving and straightforward inferencing
- Interpreting, integrating, and evaluating
Exhibit 1.6 shows the ePIRLS results for these two comprehension processes. Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Portugal, Georgia, and the United Arab Emirates had a relative advantage in retrieving and straightforward inferencing. Only the United States and Canada had a relative advantage in interpreting, integrating, and evaluating. The remaining countries essentially had no difference between the two processes.
