Quest for Synthesis.
Kling, Martin
In this progress report of an interdisciplinary consortium effort, Project 2, Literature Search in Reading, funded by USOE's Targeted Research and Development Program in Reading, the author summarizes the project objectives, milestones, and strategies used to accomplish these milestones. The objectives as reported are (1) to identify and evaluate the significant literature in the reading process, learning to read, and language development; (2) to build models of these processes; (3) to describe and synthesize these models; and (4) to describe hypotheses and tests central to developing new research studies needed to refine and extend these models. The listed milestones are (1) a working bibliography of 8,200 references; (2) the development and use of a Reference Evaluation Form (REF) to evaluate the literature; (3) computerization of REF's by interrogation criteria; and (4) working papers identifying models and the state of knowledge. A description of the project personnel is also given. References and tables are included. (AW)
