The Effects of Anxiety on Cloze Measures of Reading Comprehension for Third and Fifth Grade Average Readers.
Berrent, Howard Ira
The reading performances of high- and low-anxiety third- and fifth-grade pupils were compared. Cloze tests of reading comprehension were constructed using narrative and expository prose of varying levels of difficulty. For the third-grade sample, high-anxiety students scored significantly higher on both narrative and expository materials; sex differences were not significant. For the fifth-grade sample, girls scored significantly higher; anxiety levels were not significantly related to reading comprehension. There was also a significant interaction among sex of subject, levels of difficulty, and type of materials for the fifth-grade students. (Author/AA)
