An Analysis of Air Force Reading Improvement Programs: Results of USAF Survey Number 73-89.
Mockovak, William P.
This report summarizes the results of a questionnaire that was sent to the education offices of 93 Air Force bases in the continental United States. The purpose of the questionnaire was to obtain objective information concerning the present status of Air Force reading improvement programs in an effort to obtain insight into the type and degree of reading problems facing the Air Force. This paper attempts to answer such questions as how many airmen participate in reading improvement programs, what career fields have a significant number of low ability readers, what reading improvement programs are available at different bases, what the major reading problems encountered by Air Force personnel are, and who has the responsibility for organizing and financing the reading programs. Finally, recommendations concerning the Air Force's reading improvement programs are discussed. (TO)
