A PROPOSED TAXONOMY OF THE PERCEPTUAL DOMAIN AND SOME SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS.
MOORE, MAXINE R.
THIS PROPOSAL FOR A PRELIMINARY TAXONOMY OF THE PERCEPTUAL DOMAIN, ORGANIZED ON THE PRINCIPLE OF INTEGRATION, DREW ON GUILFORD'S THEORETICAL AND FACTOR-ANALYTICAL WORK, ON WITKIN'S FIGURE-GROUND STUDIES, AND ON THE "TAXONOMY OF EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES" MODELS. THE TAXONOMY CATEGORIES ARE SENSATION, FIGURE PERCEPTION, SYMBOL PERCEPTION, PERCEPTION OF MEANING, AND PERCEPTIVE PERFORMANCE. POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS OF THE TAXONOMY ARE ILLUSTRATED BY THE CLASSIFICATION OF TWO DIFFERENT BEHAVIOR TYPES, EACH HAVING A CLEARLY PERCEPTUAL BASIS. A HIERARCHY OF TESTS WAS DEVISED, RANGING FROM THE SIMPLEST SENSORY TO THE MOST COMPLEX BEHAVIORAL TASK, TO MEASURE AUDITORY DIAGNOSTIC ABILITY IN STUDENTS OF AUTOMOBILE MECHANICS. SEPARATE TEST BATTERIES OF MUSICAL ABILITY, THE "SEASHORE MEASURES OF MUSICAL TALENTS" AND THE "WING STANDARDIZED TESTS OF MUSICAL INTELLIGENCE," WERE PLACED IN THE TAXONOMY CATEGORIES WITH ADDITIONAL NECESSARY TESTS SUGGESTED TO ENCOMPASS THE PERCEPTUAL DOMAIN. PERCEPTUAL ANALYSIS MAY BE USEFUL IN INDICATING THE LEVELS AT WHICH INDIVIDUAL PERCEPTUAL DIFFERENCES OCCUR. OTHER APPLICATIONS OF A TAXONOMY OF PERCEPTION ARE ALSO SUGGESTED. (WR)
