Abstract

This paper will give in a preliminary way a brief summary of a new approach and a new technique for the diagnosis of reading difficulties at the college freshmen level. The oral reading of 70 poor silent readers has been recorded phonographically. Scores in the lowest quartile on the Iowa Silent Reading Test and Whipple's High School and College Reading Test were used as the criteria of inferior silent reading. The subjects thus selected were inferior in comprehension and in rate of silent reading and in vocabulary. Intelligence as approximated by the University Qualifying composite scores ranged between percentiles 1-60.
