Reading Between the Lines
You might have landed here because you’ve bought one of my other education-related eBooks. Or you might have seen some of my older posts about hacking reading comprehension. Or perhaps it was just a random search.
New Book Out
Whatever the case, I’m releasing a new eBook right now. It’s called Reading Between the Lines and it’s about how to design reading and listening comprehension questions so that you can tell whether your learners understand what you’re saying.
Design self-marking online quiz questions and assessment items
My framework in Reading Between the Lines for hacking listening and reading comprehension is also designed to work with online platforms where you might have to create online quizzes to check the understanding of learners, clients, students or whoever is doing the study.
It’s a bit nerdy, but I go into detail about 18 different types of assessment items you should be using and cover off explicit knowledge questions versus inferencing questions in plain English.
Reading Between the Lines – Free Template
Buy it or don’t buy it as you like, but you really should download the free Reading Between the Lines 3-page template I designed. It’s basically a summary of the 100 pages of content in a 3-page table. It will give you a look at all of the content to see whether it’s worth investigating further.
Of course, you might not even need to buy Reading Between the Lines once you’ve got the template. But the release price will go up shortly. So hit the button below now.
