Abstract:Digital multiple document reading comprehension is an often used skill in the 21st century. However, many prevocational education students struggle with properly comprehending multiple documents. Additionally, these students often lack motivation for reading tasks, which can lead to lower reading outcomes. The cooperative Jigsaw method could increase motivation and, therefore, reading comprehension outcomes. In this study, it was examined whether the Jigsaw method positively impacts task motivation and multiple document reading comprehension outcomes. Furthermore, it was investigated how reading comprehension level, reading motivation, reading self-efficacy, reading avoidance and topic interest moderate the effect of Jigsaw on multiple document reading comprehension outcomes. The study was conducted among 83 Dutch first and second year prevocational education students with a pre-test-post-test experiment. No significant differences in multiple document reading comprehension outcomes were found between the Jigsaw group and the individual group. Additionally, task motivation did not mediate the effect of Jigsaw on multiple document reading comprehension outcomes and the effects were not moderated by reading comprehension level, reading motivation, reading self-efficacy, reading avoidance and topic interest.
