An Examination of the Use of Cloze Tasks During Primary Grade Reading Instruction.
Paradis, Edward; Bayne, Mina
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of systematic instruction with cloze tasks on the reading achievement of primary grade children. The cloze procedure was selected as an instructional strategy because of the close relationship of the cloze procedure to the psycholinguistic model of the reading process. Twenty-two first and nine second grade children from a university laboratory school were selected as subjects. Subjects ranged in reading ability from preprimer to third grade. No subject was experiencing severe difficulty in learning to read. Results from a cloze test, a test of word knowledge, and a standardized reading test indicated that the cloze treatment and the treatment combining self-selecting reading and phonic reinforcement activities had equal effect on the primary grade subjects.
