Students who achieve the ACER Certificate in Reading Level 5 are expert readers. They demonstrate this through linking pieces of related deeply embedded information when there is strongly competing information. They interpret complex technical ideas, dense language and complex, abstract ideas. They are able to compare subtle differences between ideas and identify nuanced relationships. They confidently make sophisticated, critical evaluations and are able to identify logical flaws in complex texts. They extrapolate key ideas from the text and construct complex hypotheses.
Locate multiple pieces of information that are not explicitly referenced and are deeply embedded and dispersed throughout complex texts where there is much strongly competing information
- Deal with large amounts of competing information and retrieve technical information from complex or unusual maps, diagrams and tables.
- Link pieces of related information that are deeply embedded in highly competing information, to interpret complex technical ideas, dense language and complex, abstract ideas
- Compare subtle differences between ideas
- Identify nuanced relationships such as how disparate images echo each other, or how an image provides insight into an aspect of a character
- Make inferences to explain implicit arguments and sophisticated, symbolic references
- Select evidence to infer subtle differences in perspective and to justify interpretations of ambiguity.
- Make sophisticated, critical evaluations of texts including those that deal with information that undermines commonly held expectations
- Identify logical flaws in complex texts
- Reflect on underlying abstract themes such as the nature of freedom
- Analyse subtle, emotive elements of texts
- Extrapolate from the text to construct complex hypotheses.
