Oller, John W., Jr.
The entries in this annotated bibliography are divided into four major sections. The first includes some of the arguments pro and con on the cloze procedure and a few research studies along with some articles that give "how-to" recommendations. The second major section includes five subsections: the first deals with basic research concerning the validity and reliability of the cloze procedure as a device for assessing second language proficiency; the second includes a few references to cloze in the teaching of languages; the third is concerned with cloze as a measure of readability for ESL/EFL materials; the fourth treats cloze as an elicitation procedure for interlanguage data; and the fifth discusses oral/aural cloze research. The third major section includes references on cloze tests applied in languages other than English and also to social varieties of English. The last major section includes a subsection on general reviews of cloze research, followed by a subsection on reviews of cloze research applied to second language proficiency measurement.
