Definition of Question-Answer Relationships (QAR) strategy

Preszler (2005: 15) Question-Answer Relationships (QAR) is a reading strategy that is widely used to aid student comprehension. However, a side benefit of the strategy is that it provides a valuable approach totest preparation.

In QAR (Question-Answer Relationships) two categories of questions are identified, In the Book and In  My Head. These two categories are further broken-down into four types of questions,  Right There, Think  and Search, Author and You, and On My Own. This questioning taxonomy codifies an approach to  reading texts and answering questions and helps students understand the need to consider both  information in the text and information from their own background knowledge. QAR is the basis for  three comprehension strategies, including (1) locating information, (2) determining text structures and  how these structures may convey information, and (3) determining when an inference would be required or invited (Raphael 1986: 516–522)

Question-Answer-Relationships (QAR) is one strategy purported as providing students with ways of dealing with tests of reading comprehension generally encountered in the classroom and Raphael and Au (2005: 206) have asserted “the potential of QAR for helping teachers guide  students to higher levels of literacy”

The Question/Answer Relationship or QAR helps students understand different levels of questioning and the relationships between questions and answers.  Often students respond to questions with either a literal answer or by stating that “it” is not in the text. QAR provides four levels of questions – Right There, Think and Search, You and the Author, and On Your Own – to indicate how the question is related to the text.  This strategy allows students to understand their thinking processes and develop their metacognitive abilities.
