Controlling Factors in the Measurement of Silent Reading


by May Ayers Burgess 1921

During the past year the Department of Education of the Russell Sage Foundation has conducted a series of studies in the measurement of silent reading. This work has produced a scale for measuring the silent reading of children in grades three to eight. The scale itself consists of a large sheet of paper on which are printed 20 little pictures with a paragraph under each one; telling the pupil to make aline or mark with his pencil to supplement the picture. The number of paragraphs that he can read and mark correctly within the time limit of five minutes is taken as the measure of his ability, in this particular sort of careful silent reading. The scale is designated as Picture Supplement Scale 1, or PS-1.
