This is quiz 4. It covers vocabulary and comprehension.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Students learn most of the words in their vocabulary from direct instruction.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Students learn most of the words in their vocabulary from direct instruction" is false. While direct instruction can play a role in vocabulary development, research has shown that students acquire the majority of their vocabulary through indirect means, such as reading extensively and exposure to language in authentic contexts. This means that students learn words through various sources, including conversations, reading books, and exposure to media, rather than solely relying on direct instruction.

    Vocabulary is related to reading comprehension outcomes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that there is a relationship between one's vocabulary and their reading comprehension outcomes. This means that individuals with a larger vocabulary are more likely to have better reading comprehension skills. This is because a strong vocabulary allows for a better understanding of the words and concepts presented in a text, leading to improved comprehension.

    The Matthew's effect says...

    • A.

      Students who know more words, read more, and in turn, learn even more words.

    • B.

      Students who know more words, read more, and this creates no differences.

    • C.

      Students who know fewer words, read more, and in turn , learn more words.

    • D.

      Students who know more words, read more, and forget everything they read.

    Correct Answer
    A. Students who know more words, read more, and in turn, learn even more words.
    Explanation
    The Matthew's effect suggests that students who already have a larger vocabulary tend to read more, which in turn helps them learn even more words. This effect creates a positive feedback loop where knowledge and skills accumulate over time.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Multiple strategy instruction is important for both vocabulary and comprehension instruction.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Multiple strategy instruction is important for both vocabulary and comprehension instruction because it allows students to have a variety of tools and approaches to understand and remember new words and concepts. By providing multiple strategies, students can choose the ones that work best for them and adapt their learning to different situations. This helps to enhance their overall understanding and retention of vocabulary and comprehension skills.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Comprehension does not require explicit instruction. Students learn it on their own.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Comprehension does not always come naturally to students and often requires explicit instruction. While some students may develop comprehension skills on their own, many others need guidance and support from teachers to effectively understand and interpret texts. Therefore, the statement that students learn comprehension on their own is false.
