Readability, Interest, and Coverage of 24 Introductory Special Education Textbooks.
Maddux, Cleborne D.; And Others
Journal of Special Education, v17 n3 p333-39 Fall 1983
Twenty-four survey textbooks in special education, published between 1974 and 1982, were analyzed with formulae of R. Flesch to determine readability levels and human interest. Among results are that the texts are dull and difficult but usually complete in coverage, although some handicaps (e.g., severe/profound) receive scant coverage. (Authors)
