Readability and Reading Ease Revisited: State-Adopted Science Textbooks.
Chavkin, Laura
Clearing House, v70 n3 p151-54 Jan-Feb 1997
Examines if the reading levels of state-adopted science textbooks at the high-school level are consistent with their intended reader levels. Finds that four of five chemistry textbooks had reading levels beyond high school, while biology textbooks fared better but not as well as the physics and physical science textbooks, which were on grade level for all but one analysis.
