Abstract:

The report describes the development of an experimental program of job reading training designed to provide a level of functional literacy appropriate to minimal job task reading requirements in 6 major MOS career clusters. Program effectiveness for both general and job reading training is described in data based on the reading performance of some 3000 adult students at the 6 Army training centers at which the program was implemented. Reading training performance was measured by both a standardized test of general reading comprehension and an experimental measure of the job reading task skills required to learn and to perform a job.
