As a Blue-Collar Worker, Does Johnny Need to Read?
Martin, JoAnn
Adult Basic Education, v8 n3 p139-56 Fall 1998
A study involved analysis of reading levels of occupational materials in a paper mill, a survey of employees' basic skill needs, and Test of Adult Basic Education scores for 196 workers. Materials were too difficult for one-third to read; however, many workers did not acknowledge they lacked reading skills necessary for their job tasks. (SK)
