Difficulties in Functional Health Literacy Screening in Spanish-Speaking Adults.
Nurss, Joanne R.; And Others
Journal of Reading, v38 n8 p632-37 May 1995
Describes efforts and difficulties encountered by health care professionals who attempted to develop a Spanish-language word recognition test as a quick screening for patients' literacy levels, an effort which was ultimately unsuccessful. Notes that the close phoneme-grapheme correspondence of the spelling system means oral reading may not reflect real understanding. (SR)
