Abstract

Survey tools are the main support for the development of reading comprehension evaluation instruments. The functionalities provided in the questionnaires design are the fundamental pillar to elaborate studies to evaluate in depth the reading comprehension and metacognitive strategies used. Survey tools are the main support for the development of reading comprehension evaluation instruments. Questionnaires design in available survey tools are based primarily on open, closed, multiple choice, or mixed questions. The functionalities provided in the questionnaires design are the fundamental pillar to elaborate studies to evaluate in depth the reading comprehension and metacognitive strategies used. However, current survey tools do not provide the required functionalities (i.e., types of questions) to design studies/questionnaires that allow the development of reading tasks that examine the students’ strategic potential.
