The Effect of Interspersed Questions on Development of Reading Efficiency.
Lamberg, Walter J.
This study involved the use of interspersed questions as an instructional procedure to aid improvement in reading efficiency. Subjects, 86 college students enrolled in an undergraduate course in methods for teaching secondary reading, practiced (five times) reading nonfiction narrative selections, trying to increase their reading speed. The control group read each selection entirely and answered all ten questions, while the experimental group read half of each selection and answered only five questions. Results showed greater gains in reading efficiency by the experimental group. (JM)
