DEDUCTIVE REASONING IN ADOLESCENCE--CRITICAL THINKING READINESS IN GRADES 1-12, PHASE 1.
ENNIS, ROBERT H.; PAULUS, DIETER
THIS STUDY DEALT WITH THE CONCEPT OF DEDUCTIVE LOGIC AND ITS USE BY ADOLESCENTS, AGES 10-18. TWO EMPIRICAL QUESTIONS OF CONCERN IN THIS STUDY WERE (1) THAT OF READINESS FOR MASTERY OF LOGIC AND (2) THAT OF THE NATURAL-CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT OF MASTERY OF LOGIC. TWO DEDUCTION TESTS WERE DEVELOPED, ONE FOR EACH OF THE TYPES OF LOGIC TREATED. THEY WERE THE CORNELL CONDITIONAL-REASONING TEST, FORM X, AND THE CORNELL CLASS-REASONING TEST, FORM X. THE TESTING OF 803 SUBJECTS LED TO (1) THE SPECIFICATION OF A SET OF PRINCIPLES OF TWO MAJOR TYPES OF LOGIC, CONDITIONAL LOGIC AND CLASS LOGIC, (2) TWO LOGIC TESTS, (3) A THEORY OF OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS, AND (4) AN ANALYSIS OF PIAGET'S CONCEPTION OF LOGIC.
