by Charles H. Judd - 1916

Progress in the study of reading has been made since the report of this committee in 1915 chiefly through the opportunity supplied by the Cleveland survey to apply on a large scale the methods developed in previous studies. The Cleveland tests in reading fall into two fairly distinct groups. The first group was made with exercises selected from the readers commonly employed in the grades. In this group of tests the teachers of the whole city participated. The results show with clearness that teachers can conduct productive studies if a little supervision is provided, and that results secured by general studies of this type can be directly applied to ordinary school work. The second group of reading tests carried on in the Cleveland survey was made with standardized selections and demonstrates that a satisfactory degree of exactness can be attained even in so complex a subject as reading and that the methods of instruction in reading, especially in the upper grades, are in need of radical improvement.
