Describes a study involving 1,343 community college students, which examined the relationships between the Cultural Literacy Test (CLT), developed by E.D.

Emphasizes the clinical usefulness of the CLT and recommends that it should be routinely administered to students suspected of experiencing reading problems. (KS)
