Relationship between Cognitive Style and the Acquisition of Meaning in Content Reading.
Christiansen, Janet C.; And Others
The third in a series concerning some implications of learners' cognitive style for the development of reading competence, this paper reports on a study that was concerned with the effectiveness and efficiency with which ninth grade field dependent and field independent readers processed prose in silent reading at three difficulty levels. Results reported in the paper suggest that an inspection of the types and frequency of miscues and omissions revealed no differences between low-average and below-average readers within each of the groups.
