Originally published in 1984, this book contains reports on a series of experiments conducted by Wheildon. He focused mostly on comprehension as measured by people’s ability to answer questions about two articles after they finished reading them. One article dealt with a plan to control on-street parking, while the other involved a plan to increase local taxes and reduce services. After reading the article, a panel of 224 people from Sydney, Australia answered ten questions about comprehension. Scores of 7 to 10 correct were rated as good, 4 to 6 as fair, and three to none as poor. The tests were conducted from 1982 to 1990. Unfortunately, the experiments have not been replicated. While the findings are directionally consistent with some studies in the early 1900s, the findings on some areas (e.g., justification of typeface) have not held up.
