Factors Affecting the Difficulty of Reading Comprehension Items for Successful and Unsuccessful Readers.
Davey, Beth
Journal of Experimental Education, v56 n2 p67-76 Win 1988
The contribution of passage variables, question types, and format variables to reading comprehension was assessed for 50 successful and 50 unsuccessful readers. A three-stage conditional regression assessed the predictability of 20 predictor features on item difficulty scores. The location of response information and stem length accounted for variance for both groups. (SLD)
