NONOVERT REINFORCED CLOZE PROCEDURE.
BLOOMER, RICHARD H.; AND OTHERS
THE STUDY MEASURED THE EFFECTS OF TRAINING IN A SERIES OF CLOZE PROCEDURE EXERCISES UPON READING COMPREHENSION. STUDENTS WERE INSTRUCTED TO FILL IN BLANK SPACES IN WRITTEN TEXT. THIS ACT OF CLOSURE ITSELF WAS CONSIDERED TO BE A NONOVERT REINFORCEMENT. STUDENTS (1,411) IN 49 CLASSROOMS PARTICIPATED IN THE STUDY. A CROSS-SECTIONAL GROUP WAS STUDIED FOR 3 WEEKS, AND A LONGITUDINAL GROUP FOR 12 WEEKS. THE STUDENTS WERE FROM GRADES 5, 7, 9, AND 11. THE AUTHORS CONCLUDED THAT READING COMPREHENSION WAS NOT IMPROVED BUT SUGGESTED OTHER POSSIBLE USES OF THE PROCEDURE. (JK)
