The Trait Structure of Cloze Test Scores.
Bachman, Lyle F.
TESOL Quarterly, v16 n1 p61-70 Mar 1982
Presents study designed to examine trait structure of a cloze test using confirmatory factor analysis. Results suggest that a modified cloze passage, using rational deletions, is capable of measuring syntactic- and discourse-level relationships in a text, and this advantage may outweigh considerations of reduced redundancy which underlie random selection procedures.
