Supplementary Outcome-based Resource Material in Reading Comprehension

Jamaica B. Vizcarra and Jeanette G. Dials
Abstract—Using the Research and Development (R&D) Methodology, this study aimed to develop a supplementary outcome-based resource material in reading comprehension. Specifically, it determined the trend of the National Achievement Test results in English as a basis in the identification of the reading comprehension competencies that were included in the supplementary resource material. It also assessed the validity of the material in terms of its objectives, activities, instructional characteristics and evaluative characteristics. The main instrument used in the study is the content validation instrument which was later used to validate the content of the supplementary resource material developed. Weighted mean was used in the analysis of the content validation results. Results showed that the summary evaluation on the characteristics of the outcome-based resource material in reading comprehension acquired a descriptive interpretation of Very Valid. This means that the material generally meets the standards of an outcome-based material. Specifically, the material was evaluated as Very Valid in terms of its objectives, activities, instructional characteristics and evaluative characteristics. Therefore, the resource material is valid in improving the reading comprehension of students.

Index Terms—Content validation, outcome-based, reading comprehension, resource material.
