The Effect of Various Teaching Techniques, Involving the Cloze Procedure, Upon the Reading Achievement of Community College Students.
Pessah, Nathan
The purposes of this study are to ascertain the effectiveness of the cloze procedure when used as part of the remedial reading instruction in community college classes, and to determine if one type of teaching presentation--using the cloze procedure--is significantly superior to another. One hundred students from Bronx Community College who obtained a raw score of less than 60 on the Nelson-Denny Reading Test, Form A, served as participants in this study. Findings indicated that the reading achievement scores of community college students improved when the cloze procedure was used as part of the remedial instruction, but that there is no one teaching method in college remedial reading classes which emerges as superior to the others when used in conjunction with the cloze procedure.
