What is a Reading Comprehension Test?

A typical reading comprehension test does just that–tests your comprehension abilities. Tests such as these are primarily designed to evaluate to analyze texts in order to infer, deduce, and predict information.

Reading comprehension exercise are often preceded by a passage. The type of passage differs from test to test, but often fall into the categories of argumentative, literary, and/or factual. Questions that follow the passages may test your ability to recognize subtleties of a text, including factors such as tone, argument, and point of view. In addition, a reading comp exercise may assess your ability to recognize a test’s format – for instance, the conclusion and its relation to the introduction.

Reading comprehension questions are likely to appear in any form of standardized and/or admission testing. This is because the test simultaneously examines your vocabulary, reading ability as well as your ability to analyze, infer, and predict. All these skills are necessary for both academic, and career-based success.

Reading Comprehension Tips

  • Mark your words. If you have a chance to use a pencil during the exam, or any sort of highlighting device- use it. You may be presented with a large text. Instead of being daunted, you can use a marking device to zero-in on important words and topic sentences.
  • Be an active reader. Active reading is purposeful reading, meaning that as you read, you are deliberately evaluating qualities of the text, such as argument, point of view, and tone.
  • Infer through context. If a word appears that you don’t understand, use the sentence (and even the paragraph) that you found it in, to figure out its meaning. Remember: Reading comprehension is not only testing your vocabulary- it is testing your reasoning skills.
  • Practice before. Use realistic testing material with comprehension-based questions to train yourself to develop the skills needed for your upcoming test. TestPrep-Online offers hundreds of reading comprehension exercises with answers and explanations to help improve both your skills, and your confidence.
