Comprehensible Input Hypothesis University Session

The application of the Coverage Comprehension Model

Sat, Aug 14, 17:30-18:15 Asia/Tokyo Day 3

The Coverage Comprehension Model (CCM) describes how learners who know >95-98% or more of the tokens within a text are likely to comprehend it. This presentation explains how the operationalization of the CCM is based on four assumptions that research suggests are incorrect. Teachers and researchers will benefit from understanding this.
