cloze procedureLDAL noun

USAGE NOTE : a technique for measuring reading comprehension. In a cloze test, words are removed from a reading passage at regular intervals, leaving blanks. For example every fifth word may be removed. The reader must then read the passage and try to guess the missing words. For example, a cloze passage looks like this: A passage used in --- cloze test is a --- of written material in --- words have been regularly ---. The subjects must then --- to reconstruct the passage --- filling in the missing ---. Here, the reader has to guess a, passage, which, removed, try, by, words. The cloze procedure can also be used to judge the difficulty of reading materials. If the cloze procedure is being used for language testing, the reader is given a score according to how well the words guessed matched the original words, or whether or not they made sense. Two types of scoring procedure are used: athe reader must guess the exact word which was used in the original (as in the example above). This is called the exact word method. bthe reader can guess any word that is appropriate or acceptable in the context. This is called the acceptable word method (also the appropriate word method, the acceptable alternative method, and the contextually appropriate method). see also CLOZENTROPY Further reading Hughes 1988; Oller 1979
