Varieties of Comprehension Measures: A Comparison of Intercorrelations among Several Reading Tests.
Raygor, Alton L.; Flippo, Rona F.
The procedures used to establish the validity of the Minnesota Reading Assessment (MRA) are described in this paper. The MRA is described as a measure designed for use with students in community colleges, business schools, technical schools, and other secondary and postsecondary training institutions in order to measure student competence in specific reading skills: reading rate and retention, vocabulary, and comprehension. The paper presents data drawn from the validity studies, which were completed in connection with the standardization of the test and which involved students in vocationally oriented programs, in community colleges, in four-year colleges, and in programs for the hearing impaired.
