Some Difficulties in Using Cloze Procedures to Assess Readability.
Boyce, Max William
This thesis explores some difficulties associated with the use of the cloze procedure, particularly in relation to the interpretation of an individual's score on a cloze test. Cloze tests were administered to 112 grade-six children in four schools. The results indicated that for the children in this study the easiest words to replace were those that are one syllable long, or articles, or conjunctions, or prepositions, or pronouns. It is suggested that there is likely to be considerable overlap between the expected scores for the independent and instructional reading levels. Some of the limitations of the study are discussed.
