Reaction: The Cloze and the Composition Process.
Breneman, Beth
This paper describes the value of the cloze procedure for teaching language and composition, classroom diagnosis of language difficulties, and research into the process of composition. Any aspect of language structure, including word order, form class words, connectives, inflectional endings, and function words, could be taught through use of the cloze. Cloze tests could be constructed as diagnostic instruments by first observing the student and then examining his or her writing. Finally, the cloze procedure is a technique which may lend itself to an investigation of the composition process. (LL)
