STRUCTURAL-LEXICAL PREDICTABILITY OF MATERIALS WHICH PREDICTOR HAS PREVIOUSLY PRODUCED OR READ.
BICKLEY, A. C.; WEAVER, WENDELL W.
THE CLOZE PROCEDURE WAS USED TO INVESTIGATE THE PREDICTABILITY OF LANGUAGE MATERIALS AND TO EXAMINE THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE WRITTEN PRODUCTION OF LANGUAGE AND READING TO STRUCTURAL AND LEXICAL CONSTRUCTS. FIFTY-SIX SOPHOMORES RANDOMLY SELECTED FROM 152 STUDENTS ENROLLED IN INTRODUCTORY PSYCHOLOGY COURSES AT CAMPBELL COLLEGE WERE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO TWO TREATMENTS--WRITING MODALITY OR READING MODALITY. THE WRITING MODALITY GROUP WAS INSTRUCTED TO PRODUCE WRITTEN STORIES WHICH WERE DUPLICATED AND PRESENTED TO THE READING MODALITY GROUP. TWO CLOZE TASKS, ONE OMITTING EVERY FIFTH STRUCTURAL UNIT AND ONE DELETING EVERY FIFTH LEXICAL UNIT, WERE PREPARED FOR THE STORIES AND PRESENTED TO BOTH GROUPS 2 DAYS AFTER THE INITIAL WRITING AND READING OF THE STORIES. A TWO-WAY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WAS MADE OF THE FIRST 50 DELETIONS IN EACH PAPER ACCORDING TO STRUCTURAL-LEXICAL DELETIONS AND READING-WRITING MODALITIES. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE PRODUCER-PREDICTOR COULD PREDICT BOTH STRUCTURAL AND LEXICAL DELETIONS AT ABOUT THE SAME RATE (85 PERCENT). THE READER-PREDICTOR COULD PREDICT STRUCTURAL WORDS AS WELL AS THE PRODUCER, BUT COULD NOT PREDICT LEXICAL WORDS. THEORETICAL IMPLICATIONS ARE DISCUSSED. REFERENCES AND A TABLE ARE INCLUDED. THE PAPER APPEARS IN THE 1967 PROCEEDINGS OF THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION, DIVISION 15. (LS)
