Nacke, Phil L., Ed.
The papers in this yearbook are, for the most part, research investigations and position papers concerned with theoretical issues. The papers are grouped according to major areas which include: "Investigations of Studying," which looks at student-generated questions, advanced organizers, pre-outline organizers, and practice effects; "Investigations of Contextual and Perceptual Factors," which discusses the use of context, comprehension of telegraphic prose, constraints on cloze performance, perceptual unit size, computer techniques for studying reading, letter preference of college women, and graphic constraints on ability to read sight words; "Assessment of Reading Performance," which includes studies of reading assessment related to the cloze procedure, intelligence tests, residual gain, and psychological-diagnostic considerations; "Learning to Read, Adult Basic Education," which presents research on cognitive clarity and illustrations; "Teacher Characteristics," which discusses collateral reading flexibility, and how well teachers read to learn; "Literature, Censorship and Research: Should Offensive Texts be Eliminated?" which discusses dilemmas in censorship; and "Diverse Issues," which looks at desegregation, test-wiseness, reading comprehension, study skills, and serial learning.
