An Analysis of the Stimulus-Response Characteristics of Standardized Reading Comprehension Tests.
Berdiansky, Charles; Mindes, Paula
This analysis of the stimulus-response characteristics of reading comprehension tests was undertaken in order to determine the factors which are generally measured in the standardized tests of reading comprehension. It was assumed that such an analysis might provide a clearer notion than presently exists in the educational literature as to what educators consider to be included in the construct of comprehension. A second purpose of this analysis was to provide a concise reference to reading comprehension tests with their appropriate age-grade levels, as well as to supply information regarding intercorrelations between tests.
