Literal Level of
Recognition of what is simply, directly and explicitly the
textual message is.
This level is knowing what is actually stated which
includes facts and details, rote learning and
This level involves surface understanding only.
Literal Questions
(can easily be answered by locating and retrieving directly from
the text with little to no interpretation). They are lower-level
and align with the knowledge level of Blooms Taxonomy.
Give direct answers.
Answers will be stated plainly in the passage. Common
questions used to illicit this type of thinking are who, what,
when, and where questions. These are the easiest to answer
because the answer is expressed directly.
Example Questions

Who are the main characters?

Who wrote the book?
Where does the story take place?
What are some of the settings of the
Inferential / interpretative Level of
Reading at this level is referred to an interpretative reading or
reading between the lines combining information with interfered
At this level, readers are attempting to understand what the author
meant by what he/she said in the story, paragraph or textbook. It is
presumed that they have already memorized certain facts at the
literal level and now they are attempting to see the implications of
the authors words.
Inferential Questions
Inferential Questions (involves making inferences or drawing
conclusions based on the readers prior knowledge and schema).
Questions are not students opinions; they MUST use clues from inside
the text to form their answer. Help students to revisit the text to find
clues for their answer.
The types of questions asked are open-ended, thought-provoking
questions like why, what if, and how. The answers to these questions
are not directly stated. One is asked to analyze and think about what he
has read and to use his background knowledge about the subject to
answer the question.
Example Questions
explain clearly / explain the
suggest how
what do you think
why does the author
what impression
Critical / Evaluative / Applied Level of
The reader raises questions and evaluates the printed text
for its veracity, style, patter, etc.
Readers are attempting to elevate or raise their thinking one
more notch or level to a more critical, analyzing level. This
presumes that they have already reached the previous two
levels. They are reading between the lines and then
examining the message from the author and attempting to
apply that message to other situations.
Evaluative/ Critical/Applied Questions
are mainly opinion questions that work beyond the text. They are more
difficult to assess because one could really ask them without having read the
text. They are harder to use to assess students understanding of the text.
These questions ask one to go beyond literal and interpretive reading by
applying the information one has just read to another similar or familiar
real world questions that involve application to an invented scenario,
interpretation of the text, inclusion of the readers judgment, opinion, and
personal response.
Example Questions
Who is your favorite character and why? Who is your least
favorite character and why?
Are you reminded of another book, movie, or real-life scenario
from this book?
Why do you think the author wrote this book? Do you think it
would make a difference to a child after reading this book in
their behavior, either about bullying or standing up to bullies?
Did you like the book? Why or why not?
Would this book appeal to boys, as well? Why or why not?
Creative Level of Comprehension
Reader sees new ideas/insights from the textual
Reading at this level of comprehension is known
as creative reading.
Creative Reading is defined as reading for
implied and inferred meanings, appreciative
reactions, and critical evaluation (Russell, 1968).
