I believe we are speaking of a skill that has not been addresed, even by the
standards. Recently had to learn to program in a relational database.
Previous programming I had done began and ended with plain old basic. This
was part of a fellowship
to link education and industry so teachers could see the skills needed for
workers, etc. My source was manuals - that is all.
Technical reading is not addressed in any program - except maybe in
"tech-prep" programs. There is a time and a place when you cannot consult
others - or work in a group. Students need to be taught how to use all kinds
of resources - even their textbooks. They should also be taught how to
de-code them - or we should be addressing this in other ways.
