The Different Levels of Reading

 
There is illiteracy, which is lacking the ability to read, there is reading and not understanding what you are reading, there is reading and understanding the face value of the material, and there is reading with inference and insight into the mind of the writer.

Having the ability to read and not understanding what you are reading can also be considered as illiteracy. There are many cases when people are illiterate. Illiteracy is frequent even among those who consider themselves to be religious, as can be seen with an examination into holy scriptures.

There is also reading and understanding the face value of the material, as can be done by plain reading, cramming, or memorizing information.

A deeper inspection into the writing leads us to expand our scope of understanding into looking through the lens of the writer. Reading with insight and inference into the mind of the writer can help us see the writing strategy of the writer as well as comprehend the author's understanding of the subject at hand. The power of inference can be used to obtain additional information by seeking to understand the author's intentions, goals, persuasion techniques, preferences, etc...

For example: We can infer that the doctor used long-term interview processes to extract the information that is given to us about the patients if we read a medical school textbook.
 
In school, there is cramming to pass the test, and there is studying the material by giving it serious consideration.
