Abstract

The purpose of this study was to ascertain to what extent pupils do not comprehend the reading material in the social studies and to discover the causes of this deficiency. Two types of research techniques were used: (1) pencil and paper tests which were given to sixty-two pupils, and (2) oral interviews with thirty-one pupils who had previously taken the pencil and paper tests.
