FLOREZ ROMERO, Rita et al. Metalinguistic skills, metacognitive operations and their relationship with the different levels of reading and writing competence: an explorative study. Forma funcion, Santaf, de Bogot, D.C. [online]. 2005, n.18, pp. 15-44. ISSN 0120-338X.
The authors of this study endeavour to explore the metalinguistic skills, the metacognitive operations and their relationship with the reading and writing competence. For the evaluation of metalinguistic skills an instrument was developed based on van Kleeck’s (1995) proposal, regarding the subjectivity of language and language as a system. Two specimens were designed for the evaluation of metacognitive operations, one for reading and another one for writing metacognition. For the evaluation of reading and writing competence the project instruments for the Census Evaluation of Basic Language Competence, designed by the District Secretary of Education and by the National University, was applied. In the data evaluation descriptive statistics were applied, as a measure of core tendency in the case of continuous variables, and frequency distributions and tables of contiguity in the case of nominal variables.
