I am currently enrolled in a graduate program, which will certify me as a literacy specialist. We have studied many trends and issues in literacy education. One topic was how the nature of reading comprehension is changing because of digital technology. Also, the ultimate challenge in assessing online reading comprehension is that online texts, tools and reading contexts will continue to change rapidly as new technologies emerge. The internet and digital have altered the nature of literacy and have helped define new literacies. So, how should educators adapt their methods to measure online reading comprehension in this ever changing digital world? Also research has shown online reading and traditional print reading require different literacy skills. How would you adapt your assessments to accommodate these differences?
