SANTOS, Acácia Aparecida Angeli dos  y  MONTEIRO, Rebecca Magalhães. Validity of Cloze as a reading comprehension assessment technique. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.2, pp. 86-100. ISSN 2236-6407.

The Cloze test has been used as a measure of reading comprehension, through the replacement of some missing words in a text by the reader. This study explored validity evidence in two texts based on the Cloze’s technique by correlating them with the Writing Evaluation Scale - EAVE, as well as exploring the differences in Cloze’s score and the performance of students’ subgroups, stablished according to the EAVE’s score. The participants consisted of 92 children from a public school in the state of Sao Paulo with ages ranging from 7 to 10 years. The instruments used were two texts based on Cloze’s technique and the EAVE. The results indicated a high and significant correlation between the texts and the EAVE, showing convergence between the constructs. In addition, the students with poorly performing on EAVE obtained the lowest average in cloze.
