1970 Review of Research on College-Adult Reading.
Bliesmer, Emery P.
Research in college and adult reading for the period from September, 1969, through September, 1970, is reviewed. Over 160 studies are cited in the review which does not include proceedings of the 1970 National Reading Conference or of the 1970 International Reading Association Conference since these proceedings were not available at the time the review was compiled. Reports included in the review are organized under five major headings: Programs; Reading, Study, and Related Habits, Traits, and Skills; Influence of Reading, Study, and Related Habits and Skills; Factors Influencing Reading and Other Study Habits and Skills; and Readability, Testing, Newspapers, and Other. A 163-item bibliography is included. (MS)
