Training with the Cloze Procedure, Visually and Auditorially, To Improve the Reading and Listening Comprehension of Third Grade Underachieving Readers.
Kennedy, Delores Kessler
The purpose of this study was to determine if training auditorially would improve listening comprehension and/or reading comprehension and if visual training with the Cloze Procedure would improve reading and/or listening comprehension. The experimental reading group received training visually with the Cloze Procedure and the experimental listening group received training auditorially with the Cloze Procedure. The two control reading groups spent the same average time practicing oral reading as the experimental groups spent in training. After training, all subjects were given, individually, auditory and visual Cloze Procedure posttests and, in groups, the Durrell Listening Reading (DLR) Series, Intermediate Level. The experimental group did significantly better on the DLR reading comprehension subtest than the other three groups; and they did significantly better on the DLR listening comprehension subtest than the control class group. The experimental listening group did significantly better on the DLR listening comprehension subtest than the control class group, but they did no better on the DLR reading comprehension subtest than the two control groups.
