10-second review: Ruddell’s (1974) levels of comprehension: factual, interpretive, applicative. Skills of comprehension: events recalled; sequence of events; facts recalled; details recalled.
Comment: The “applicative” level of comprehension means applying the information read in some way. This step, in my experience, is usually ignored after students have completed factual recall and interpretation. Skills of comprehension involve recall and are divided into events and facts and details. Probably a useful way to define comprehension. RayS.
