Abstract:

READNEED research was concerned with the development of methodologies for determining reading requirements of Army MOSs. Three approaches for assessing MOS literacy demands are decribed a analysis using a newly developed readability formula b use of information currently in Army data banks to study relationships between reading ability and job proficiency and c direct assessment by means of job reading task tests. Feasibility studies that indicate the relative merits of each approach, and certain conceptual and operational problems in determining literacy requirements of jobs are described.
