The Readability of School Biology Textbooks
Gould, C. D.
Journal of Biological Education, 11, 4, 248-52, Dec 77
The readability of three popular texts for the 14-16 age range was estimated by three different measures. Comprehension tests of material from the books (cloze tests) were given to 100 secondary school biology pupils. The results confirmed that the texts presented serious problems of comprehension for some pupils. (Author/MA)
