The Analysis of Reading Skill: A Program of Basic and Applied Research. Final Report.
Levin, Harry; And Others
With the contention that increased concern over the status of reading requires that the experimental testing of reading hypotheses be conducted with the most modern methods of behavioral science and be based on a theoretical analysis of the reading process, both psychological and linguistic, this final report from a group of investigators pursues various ideas with individual reports. Three are on aspects of visual and/or auditory relationships to reading, and five deal with specific investigations of graphic discrimination. A majority of the papers are grouped under "Studies of Oral Reading." Seven of them cover a broad scope of the relation of spelling to reading ability--three of these dealing with homographs; eye-voice span is considered in six--four of these relating eye-voice span to syntax. Three articles deal with beginning reading in terms of grammatical context, visual perception, and scribbling and drawing. The abstracts to five related theses written by research assistants working on the project are included. Each paper includes its own references. Most of them include abstracts and tables. (BT)
