Shuy, Roger W.
Georgetown Journal of Languages and Linguistics, v1 n3 p355-69 Sum 1990
Argues that reading comprehension is better measured in performance contexts than in decontextualized standardized tests (especially for the nonhearing) and that dialogue journal writing is a better method of testing reading comprehension. Five types of comprehension can be isolated in journals: propositions, questions, inferential messages, appropriate responses, and requests for clarification. (six references) (JL)
