THE CLOZE PROCEDURE--A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE AND POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS TO THE STUDY OF DEVIANT LANGUAGE FUNCTIONS.
BENNETT, STANLEY; AND OTHERS
THE "CLOZE PROCEDURE" AS DEFINED BY TAYLOR (1953) IS A TECHNIQUE IN WHICH A MESSAGE IS MUTILATED BY DELETING EVERY N-TH ELEMENT. THE TASK REQUIRES RECONSTRUCTION OF THE MESSAGE IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM. TAYLOR POSTULATED THAT THE "CLOZE UNIT" IS DEPENDENT ON TOTAL CONTEXT AND THE DEGREE OF ASSOCIATION WITH THE IMMEDIATELY SURROUNDING ELEMENTS. A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE HAS REVEALED A LACK OF EVIDENCE REGARDING THE FUNCTIONING OF MENTALLY RETARDED CHILDREN ON THE CLOZE TASK. THE PRESENT REVIEW OF RESEARCH EXPLORES THE VARIABLES WHICH AFFECT CLOZE PERFORMANCE. THE GOAL OF FUTURE STUDIES IN THIS PROJECT WILL BE TO APPLY CLOZE PROCEDURE IN A RESEARCH PROGRAM DESIGNED TO STUDY THE LANGUAGE FUNCTIONING OF MENTALLY RETARDED CHILDREN. THIS REPORT WAS PUBLISHED IN "STUDIES IN LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE BEHAVIOR, PROGRESS REPORT IV," 1967, BY THE CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE BEHAVIOR, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, 220 EAST HURON STREET, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48108.
