Academic Reading Skills

Academic reading is an active process of reading where the reader interacts with a text through taking notes, making connections between the text through what they already know and what other texts have said, and asking critical questions about the content they read. Academic reading involves a multi-faceted approach of engagement where the reader uses a range of reading strategies (prediction, surveying, skimming, scanning, analysis, reading in detail and summarising) to determine the scope and relevance of a piece and deciding which parts should be read in more depth (Wilson, 2022).

Academic Reading Tests

AEUK academic reading tests have been specifically written for international university students. The texts are based around academic journals and there are a variety of test questions (sub-title matching / T,F,NG / open answers / gap fill / information tables / summary / reference words / vocabulary).
