Journal of Literacy Research, v28 n4 p525-59 Dec 1996
Examines the construct and action validity of the use of simple checklists to assess the declarative knowledge component of adult's literacy by telephone. Finds significant relationships among knowledge when assessed either by listening (telephone) or by reading (mailed questionnaire) modality. Concludes that the telephone method may provide a valid, cost-effective alternative to door-to-door assessments of literacy. (RS)
