Moore, David W.
Language Arts, v60 n8 p957-69 Nov-Dec 1983
Presents a historical overview of the introduction of the major reading comprehension assessments, showing that the predominant approaches were shaped by the prevailing educational measurement milieu and were implemented largely in response to public pressure. Argues in favor of a naturalistic reading comprehension assessment for evaluating those behaviors that elude quantification. (HTH)
