Investigates whether scores on the Learning and Study Skills Inventory (LASSI) could be used to identify postsecondary students who had deficiencies in reading comprehension and vocabulary as measured by the Nelson-Denny Reading Test (NDRT). Finds that participants who obtained low percentile rankings on vocabulary and comprehension were most often misclassified as average or good readers. (SC)
