Cloze Instruction Research: A Second Look.
Jongsma, Eugene A.
The purpose of this monograph is to review and synthesize the literature pertaining directly to the use of cloze as a teaching technique. The literature review is arranged into eight sections: (1) analysis of comparative studies, in which studies that have compared the cloze procedure are examined; (2) analysis of instructional goals, in which the effectiveness of cloze for different instructional purposes is reviewed; (3) analysis of materials, in which the use of cloze with various types of reading materials and the transfer effects of cloze are discussed; (4) analysis of age, grade level, and reading ability; (5) analysis of teaching procedures, in which discussion, grouping, sequencing, and length of instruction are examined; (6) analysis of deletion strategies; (7) analysis of scoring methods; and (8) analysis of students attitudes. Following the individual analyses, the conclusions of the complete review are summarized. The monograph also contains a discussion of future directions for research and instruction involving cloze. Each study reviewed in the monograph is summarized in an appendix. (FL)
