Abstract

In this study, we analyze comprehension and metacomprehension differences between expository (EX) and informative narrative (IN) texts when answering different questions following Kintsch’s comprehension model (textbase/situation model). 100 participants read different expository texts and answered multiple-choice questions. Expository texts were presented in two formats (EX/IN). A mixed-effects model showed no interaction between structure of text and type of text, but a statistically significant effect of text structure. Results are discussed according to previous research.

Keyphrases: genre, Metacomprehension, text processing
