  • Description: Coiro examines the skills and abilities needed to interact with text on the Internet while exploring the answers to four questions: Is the comprehension process different on the Internet? If so, what new thought processes are required beyond those needed to comprehend conventional print? Are these processes extensions of traditional comprehension skills, or do Web-based learning environments demand fundamentally different skills? If comprehension is different on the Internet, what implications do these differences have for comprehension instruction, assessment and professional development?
