Abstract : This quarterly report discusses a reading comprehension test (cognitive structure test) that has been developed by the present project. The paragraph comprehension section of the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) and the reading comprehension section of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) were chosen for item type selection in the pilot study. AFQT and SAT texts are being run through two computer writing aids to improve coherence. A computer program for interviewing experts on their choice of terms has been constructed. Field testing has been scheduled.
