Group vs. Individual Completion of a Cloze Passage.
Jacobson, Jeanne M.
Journal of Reading, v33 n4 p244-50 Jan 1990
Investigates the effect of cooperative completion of a cloze passage with subjects who are relatively sophisticated in both language use and group interaction strategies. Finds that groups produced more responses than individuals; gave fewer idiosyncratic or illogical responses; attended to larger chunks of text; and used every available clue. (RS)
