This study expands order of processing models by considering two variables which could affect order in a particular reading task. Specifically, two research questions are addressed: (1) Does the extent of a reader's background affect the order of processing between the two processes of comprehending a text and using text ideas for a thinking task? (2) Does the typical processing style of a reader affect the order of processing between these two components?
