Clinical Problem Solving in Reading: Theory and Research. Research Series No. 45.
Gil, Doron; And Others
This report provides an overview of the research being conducted by the Clinical Studies Group of the Institute for Research on Teaching, whose research is designed to improve the instruction, evaluation, and performance of preservice and inservice reading diagnosticians. The first section of the report describes the use of an inquiry theory of clinical problem solving that analyzes the clinical encounter or the clinical interaction. The second section describes observational studies, including a 1977 study of eight reading specialists using simulated case studies, a reading and learning disabilities study, a classroom teachers study, a diagnostic process and outcomes study, the development and use of a paper problem as an observational instrument, and a study of the relationship between diagnosis and remediation in reading. Other sections describe a study of computer simulation of clinician process and a study of the application of an instructional corollary to teacher training. (MKM)
