@rpondiscio Agree. The role of background knowledge is probably the most stable variable in the entire history of comprehension research when explaining variance in scores.

And as you notes attempt to erase background knowledge from assessments lead to stupid assessments.

Though I am also getting intrigued by exploration into disciplinary literacies and the idea that networking deeper into a community is a route to ensuring content as much as curriculum.
