The Level of Abstraction of Textual Materials: A New and an Old Measure Compared.
Newton, Douglas P.
Journal of Research in Reading, v15 n2 p117-19 Sep 1992
Compares a "new" measure for assessing the level of abstraction of textual material with an old measure. Finds some similarity in their assessment of science texts, and finds that the earlier measure may be easier for the nonspecialist to use. Suggests a rule of thumb for practicing teachers. (SR)
