Reid, Juliet M. V.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n7 p447-53 Jul 1998
Reviews the research related to the definition of "literacy" and the comparability of various reading media and their implications for vocational assessment of literacy skills with visually impaired adults. It suggests that the characteristics of literacy, the media, and of the working methods used in criterion situations affect the content validity of assessment tasks with this population. (Author/DB)
