have a command of basic academic vocabulary, but their understanding of less common vocabulary is inconsistent; have limited ability to understand and connect information, have difficulty recognizing paraphrases of text information, andoften rely on particular words and phrases rather than a complete understanding of the text; have difficulty identifying the author’s purpose, except when that purpose is explicitly stated in the text or easy to infer from the text; and can sometimes recognize major ideas from a text when the information is clearly presented, memorable or illustrated by examples, but have difficulty doing so when thetext is more demanding.
