The pre- and post- reading comprehension tasks tasks were the same and made up of five multiple-choice comprehension questions for each passage, with 40 questions in total. The questions were directly chosen from the CET 4. In order to eliminate the influences of the pretest on posttest, the time span during these two tests was more than 1 month. Moreover, so as to have a better understanding of the efficacy of glosses on reading comprehension, the reading comprehension questions were divided into two parts and were analyzed separately. Part 1 included 16 questions which need to be answered by using the knowledge of the glossed words directly. Part 2 consisted of 24 questions which need not be answered using the glossed words directly.

Both the vocabulary and reading comprehension tests were scored in a binary fashion. Students got 1 point for a correct answer and 0 point for a wrong answer. The highest possible score on vocabulary test was 60 and on reading comprehension test was 40. All tests were completed online instead of using a traditional paper-and-pen format.
