Reading Text/Lecture

  • ability to understand reading material in the form of sentences or paragraphs
  • generally involves reading notes, letters, memos, manuals, specifications, regulations, books, reports or journals

Reading includes:

  • forms and labels if they contain at least one paragraph
  • print and non-print media (for example, text on computer screens and microfiche)
  • paragraph-length text in charts, tables and graphs

We use this skill to:

  • scan for information
  • skim overall meaning
  • evaluate what we read
  • integrate information from multiple sources
