THE CONSTRUCTION AND VALIDATION OF TESTS OF THE COGNITIVE PROCESSES AS DESCRIBED IN THE "TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES".
KROPP, RUSSELL P.; AND OTHERS
THE BROAD PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO TEST EMPIRICALLY THE STRUCTURE OF THE HANDBOOK "TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 1--COGNITIVE DOMAIN." IT WAS NECESSARY TO CONSTRUCT FOUR FORMS OF A TAXONOMY-TYPE TEST SINCE NONE WAS AVAILABLE. THE PHENOMENA WHICH ARE CLASSIFIED BY THE "TAXONOMY" ARE THE RESPONSES (BEHAVIORS) WHICH TEST ITEMS (IN THE COGNITIVE DOMAIN AS CONTRASTED WITH THE AFFECTIVE AND PSYCHOMOTOR DOMAINS) ARE INTENDED TO EVOKE. AS AN AID TO THE READER, THE REPORT CONTAINS SEVERAL SECTIONS WHICH DEAL ENTIRELY WITH THE TEST DEVELOPMENT AND TEST ADMINISTRATION. THE VALIDITY OF THE TAXONOMIC STRUCTURE OF IMPUTED HIERARCHY WAS GENERALLY SUPPORTED BY THE EMPIRICAL DATA. FURTHER STUDY WAS RECOMMENDED IN SUCH AREAS AS KNOWLEDGE AS A PROCESS, ITEM ANALYSIS DATA, TRIANGULAR BIVARIATE DISTRIBUTIONS, INTENDED AND ACTUAL PROCESSES, THE EVALUATION PROCESS, NORMS FOR TAXONOMY-TYPE TESTS, ITEM TYPES, AND PYRAMID TESTS.
