VELASQUEZ RIVERA, Marisol; CORNEJO VALDERRAMA, Carolina  y  ROCO VIDELA, Ángel. Reading Comprehension Assessment in First-Year Students of Humanistic and Health Programs of Study Offered by Three Rectors' Council Universities. Estud. pedagóg. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.1, pp.123-138. ISSN 0718-0705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07052008000100007.

This paper presents the results yielded by an in-situ, quantitative and semi-experimental research whose aim was the assessment of the inferential reading comprehension in first-year students enrolled in humanistic and health programs of study offered by three universities affiliated to the Rectors' Council. To gather the data, a structured reading comprehension test (multiple choice) comprising two texts and sixteen inferential questions (lexical, causal, macrostructural, topic-specific, and author's intention) was given to 372 university students who had enrolled in 2006. From the analysis of the results it can be concluded that the participants reveal a low reading comprehension level on this reading task.

Palabras clave : reading comprehension assessment; inferences; university students.
