Cloze Tests for Deletion Produced Structures.
Cosens, Grace V.
Designed to measure comprehension of intact and deleted sentence structures corresponding to selected deletion transformation rules, this test is intended to be used with primary age children. Eight test passages were constructed at each of the first reader and high second reader levels from stories in the Ginn Basic Reader so that each passage contained test sentences for 12 deletion reansformations (WH deletion, BE deletion, WH and BE deletion, that and subject as object, performative deletion, imperative deletion, preposition deletion, verb phrase deletion, noun phrase deletion, noun phrase and auxiliary deletion, noun phrase and verb and other elements in the verb phrase deletion, and comparative deletion), half in the deleted form and the other half intact. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Reading), title, author, date, and age range (primary), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (WR)
