After a review of past research in reading education, Science Research Associates arrived at reading objectives which were then reviewed by the National Assessment of Educational Progress staff, educators, and laymen. The six major reading objectives, appropriate for age-groups 9, 13, 17, and young adults, are the abilities to comprehend, analyze, use, reason from, make judgments about, and have attitudes about reading materials. Three categories of reading material were considered in formulating the objectives: literature, academic and expository writing, and utilitarian writing. (Detailed outlines enumerating subobjectives are provided, as well as lists of committee participants who assessed the objectives.) (MF) Primary type of information provided by report: Assessment Instrument (Objectives); Procedures (Objectives Development).
