Kondziela, James M.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v54 n2 p415-18 Apr 1982
A technique for measuring comprehension of lengthy prose is presented. The "textual segmentation" procedure requires subjects to partition text into complete, meaningful units such as paragraphs, chapters, and books. Potential applications of textual segmentation include measurement of reading comprehension, readability, and criteria for evaluation of text-reading/writing computer programs. (Author/RD)
