Abstract

Problem Statement: In this study, different doze procedures were investigated in Turkish. Six different cloze test formats, including regular cloze, regular cloze with initial letter-cue, dashed cloze, dashed cloze with initial-letter cue, matching format, and maze format were used to determine how these different cloze formats measure students' reading levels.
