Fernando Guzmán-Simón obtained his PhD. in Spanish Language and Literature at the University of Seville (Spain), where he is a lecturer in the Department of Language and Literature Teaching. He has published several research articles on the assessment of academic writing in Spanish.
My current research is framed in a broader research project about the development of linguistic communication competence in Early Childhood, Primary, Secondary and Higher Education. Some of the enquiries of the project are the studies of literacy events and practices in different educational levels, the study of reading comprehension, and the research on predictors of reading efficiency in reading beginners.
