Research output: Journal PublicationsReview articleOther Review


This scoping review illuminates the self-paced reading task as a computer-based methodology for second language (L2) reading assessment. To find support for this methodology, the authors explored the research foci, language contexts, and types of self-paced reading studies over five years (2016 2021), as well as the self-paced reading task s instruments and some significant study findings for L2 research. The review also showcases the most influential self-paced reading studies in the L2 context based on the author s affiliation, research venue, and citation data. As a result, this scoping review examines possibilities and hindrances in integrating computer-based self-paced reading tasks into L2 assessment.
