Literacy and voting behavior : a statistical analysis based on the 1985 young adult literacy survey by David Kaplan( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study explored the contribution of selected literacy, demographic, and sociopolitical variables on registering to vote and on voting, using as a database a subset of the respondents to the Young Adult Literacy Survey, administered in 1985 to a stratified national sample of 21- through 25-year-olds. Three sets of independent variables were explored: demographic characteristics, political participation, and literacy practices and proficiencies. When a bivariate probit regression model with sample selection was applied to these data, only the amount of hard news read and years of education were significant predictors of voting, given registration. For registration, these variables, plus ethnicity/race, television viewing, and the degree to which one keeps up with governmental affairs were all significant predictors. The conclusion was that increased education and increased attention to hard news reading within school and adult education curricula could lead to increased propensities to vote. Appendixes include five data tables. Contains 6 endnotes and 24 references. (Author/YLB)

Literacy assessment in the service of literacy policy by Richard L Venezky( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literacy policy has often developed independently of other social and employment programs. As a consequence, literacy tends to become an end unto itself, and assessment is directed more toward academic, archival ends than toward policy evaluation. Many justifications given for large-scale literacy programs are not based upon empirical data. Foremost among these justifications are the projected skills mismatch between the job market and new entrants to the work force. Additionally, the target audience for literacy training is often greatly inflated. The basis of most recent assessments of adult literacy is functional literacy, but there are concerns that it fails to provide a basis for predicting abilities in new literacy contexts and it lacks a basis for selecting specific assessment tasks. Rather than abandoning functional literacy, an attempt should be made to support it both theoretically and empirically. Questions have also been raised about the effectiveness of different literacy programs and limited experience in measuring literacy program performance. The need for an extensive database to support literacy policy becomes imperative. Perhaps the most important lesson to be learned from national literacy surveys is that they have limitations for policy formation and evaluation. What is needed in most developed countries is more focused information on the groups who need assistance and the effectiveness of programs instituted to assist them. (Contains 41 references.) (Ylb)
Rules to aid in the teaching of reading by Ruth Hirsch Weir( Book )

8 editions published between 1963 and 1980 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A linguistic model development for describing spelling-to-sound correspondences was undertaken and a number of spelling-to-sound patterns analyzed, continuing an earlier study performed under project no. S-039 (ed 003 445). research emphasized vowel spellings and the influence of various consonants upon the pronunciations of these spellings. It was based on these hypotheses--(1) that english spelling relates not only to phonology, but also to morphology and syntax and (2) that, when viewed with this understanding, a much higher degree of regularity emerges than when understanding is confined to a simple letter-to-sound relationship. Raw data were accumulated through use of a digital computer. Such basic sets of correspondences as--(1) spelling-to-morphophoneme, (2) morphophoneme-to-morphophoneme, and (3) morphophoneme-to-phoneme were established. It was concluded that the major emphasis in teaching the relationship between spelling and sound should center on spelling-to-morphophoneme patterns. Additional study was recommended, however, before adapting the material presented to the teaching of reading. (Jm)
