Modeling the Reading Process: Promise and Problems.
Geyer, John J.
The problems of modeling a process as complex as reading are discussed, including such factors as the lack of agreement surrounding definitions of modeling, varying levels of rigor within and between models, the disjunctive categories within which models fall, and the difficulty of synthesis across fields which employ very different technical language. The author emphasizes the natural tendency for information processing models to cut across traditional disciplines and suggests a conceptual strategy whereby the many models contained in the Davis Report can be approached for synthesis.
