ReaderBench – Automated Identification of Reading Strategies

The use of reading strategies is widely recognized as a crucial determinant of reading comprehension. These strategies can be elicited through self-explanations. The automatically identified strategies within ReaderBench comprise of monitoring, causality, bridging, paraphrase and elaboration. Therefore, specific strategies used by learners become reliable predictors of comprehension; the usage of textual complexity indices also improves the overall accuracy.
