summary
The Reading Abilities of College Students was first published in 1931. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.How well do college students read? Can they be taught to read more intelligently by the means of intensive drills and vocabulary tests? The prevalent interest in these and similar questions has led Dr. Alvin Eurich to conduct at the University of Minnesota the carefully controlled experiment described in this volume. The special training given the experimental group is described in detail; the tests used to measure comprehension and retention of material read, rate of reading, habits of study, and vocabulary are explained and evaluated; and the relative improvement in reading skill made by students who were given special training and by those who had no such training is carefully analyzed.
