QAR, or Question-Answer Relationship, is an idea that their three different types of questions and possible ways of finding answers to them in any given text. The first kind is called textually explicit, which means that the answers to a given question are directly stated right in the text. The second kind is known as textually implicit, which means that the answers are not directly stated, but are implied or can be inferred from the text. The final type of QAR is known as scriptally implicit, which suggests that the answers can be found in the reader’s head in the form of prior knowledge.(Tools for Teaching Content Literacy, Janet Allen)
