Functional Literacy among the Elderly: Where We Are(n't).
Courtenay, Bradley C.; And Others
Educational Gerontology, v8 n4 p339-52 Jul-Aug 1982
Reviews and analyzes studies conducted on functional literacy among older adults. The results indicate conceptual confusion, an obviously undereducated older population, inadequate measurements, and samples with disproportionate percentages of older persons. Conclusions indicate the need for educational gerontologists to increase efforts at improving literacy education. (Author)
