Abstract [en]

This study examines differences in language use in different scientific subjects by analysing all grade 8 science items from TIMSS 2011. Four meaning dimensions are identified as central for analysing what functions different linguistic features fulfil in scientific language. They concern the levels of Packing, Precision and Presentation of information, and the level of Personification in a text.

The results show that language use in TIMSS differs in some ways among the scientific subjects. Average physics language uses more words. Language use in biology shows higher Packing and lower Precision, while physics shows the opposite pattern. Although items are generally low in Personification, the language of physics has higher levels of Personification, especially compared to earth science. Language in chemistry often presents information in more complex ways. According to these results, the study appears to challenge the notion that there is a single scientific language.

Abstract [en]

We report on results from using the multivariate readability model SVIT to classify texts into various levels. We investigate how the language features integrated in the SVIT model can be transformed to values on known criteria like vocabulary, grammatical fluency and propositional knowledge. Such text criteria, sensitive to content, readability and genre in combination with the profile of a student’s reading ability form the base to individually adapted texts. The procedure of levelling texts into different stages of complexity is presented along with results from the first cycle of tests conducted on 8th grade students. The results show that SVIT can be used to classify texts into different complexity levels.

Abstract [en]

We present T-MASTER, a tool for assessing students’ reading skills on a variety of dimensions. T-MASTERuses sophisticated measures for assessing a student’s reading comprehension and vocabulary understanding.Texts are selected based on their difficulty using novel readability measures and tests are created based on thetexts. The results are analyzed in T-MASTER, and the numerical results are mapped to textual descriptionsthat describe the student’s reading abilities on the dimensions being analysed. These results are presented tothe teacher in a form that is easily comprehensible, and lends itself to inspection of each individual student’sresults.
