Measuring Growth in Appreciation of Literature. Reading Information Series: Where Do We Go?
Cooper, Charles R.
This monograph is written primarily for the researcher. It reviews a number of attempts to measure appreciation of literature. The measurements are grouped in two categories: (1) discrimination among poems or prose extracts, and (2) content analysis. Following the review is an evaluation of the limitations and possibilities of these measures. The monograph concludes with specific recommendations for further research into the problem of measuring growth in appreciation of literature. (Author)
