Inference-based and expectation-based processing in program comprehension

M.P. O'Brien, J. Buckley
Proceedings 9th International Workshop on Program Comprehension. IWPC 2001  
The first is 'inference-based' comprehension, where the programmer derives meaning from clichéd implementations in the code.  ...  The second is 'expectation-based' comprehension, where the programmer has pre-generated expectations of the code's meaning.  ...  Chris Douce for his valuable suggestions and constructive criticism on earlier versions of the paper.

Translating advances in reading comprehension research to educational practice

Danielle S. McNamara, Panayiota Kendeou
2011 International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education  
The authors review five major findings in reading comprehension and their implications for educational practice.  ...  Third, inferences are a crucial component of skilled comprehension. Hence, children need scaffolding and remediation to learn to generate inferences, even when they know little about the text topic.  ...  Inferencing and Prior Knowledge Another major advance in reading comprehension research concerns the central role of inference processes and the role of prior knowledge in these processes.  ...

The neural bases of program comprehension: a coordinate-based fMRI meta-analysis [article]

Yoshiharu Ikutani, Takeshi D Itoh, Takatomi D Kubo
2021 bioRxiv   pre-print
However, individual neuroimaging studies of program comprehension often provided inconsistent results and made it difficult to identify the neural bases.  ...  These findings suggest that program comprehension mainly recycles the language-related networks and partially employs other domain-general resources in the human brain.  ...  Peitek for sharing their data of peak voxel coordinates in Siegmund et al.

Expert Programming Knowledge: A Schema-based Approach [chapter]

Françoise Détienne
1990 Psychology of Programming  
The topic of this chapter is the role of expert programming knowledge in the understanding activity.  ...  In the "schema-based approach", the role of semantic structures is emphasized whereas, in the "control-flow approach", the role of syntactic structures is emphasized.  ...  First, as shown in Pennington's chapter, the same kind of knowledge is used by the processes of program composition and program comprehension.  ...

Exploring EFL Students' Problems in Listening Comprehension

Nurhidayah Sari, Rinda Fithriyana
2019 JEES (Journal of English Educators Society)  
This research aims to find out the students' problems in listening comprehension and identify the factors contributing to the problems.  ...  The results of the research showed that the students still have low listening comprehension. The most difficult indicator of listening comprehension is making inference.  ...  RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Based on the observation on the teaching and learning process in Listening Comprehension class at the Second Semester of English Study Program of University of Pahlawan Tuanku Tambusai  ...

Cross-Representational Signaling and Cohesion Support Inferential Comprehension of Text–Picture Documents

Juliette C. Désiron, Mireille Bétrancourt, Erica de Vries
2021 Frontiers in Psychology  
Our first experimental study investigated the effect of those two factors (cohesion and signaling) on three levels of comprehension (text based, local inferences, global inferences).  ...  The results showed no effect of conditions on comprehension performances but confirmed differences in processing behaviors.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank teachers of French from the ECG Ella Maillart (Geneva, Switzerland), for their collaboration and precious help in the recruitment of participants.  ...
