HESS, ROBERT D.; AND OTHERS
THIS MANUAL DESCRIBES MEASURES USED IN "THE COGNITIVE ENVIRONMENTS OF URBAN PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN" PROJECT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO. THE SAMPLE FOR THE STUDY CONSISTED OF 163 NEGRO MOTHER-CHILD PAIRS SELECTED FROM 3 SOCIOECONOMIC CLASSES BASED ON THE FATHER'S OCCUPATION AND THE PARENTS' EDUCATION. A FOURTH GROUP INCLUDED FATHER-ABSENT FAMILIES. THE MOTHERS WERE INTERVIEWED AT HOME AND THE MOTHERS AND CHILDREN WERE TESTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO WHEN THE CHILDREN WERE 4 YEARS OLD. FOLLOW-UP DATA WERE OBTAINED WHEN THE CHILDREN WERE 6 AND AGAIN WHEN THEY WERE 7. THE "SCHOOLS" QUESTION ASKED OF THE MOTHER WAS WHAT SHE WOULD DO ABOUT THE SCHOOLS IF SHE COULD DO AS SHE WISHED. RESPONSES WERE TAPE RECORDED AND TRANSCRIBED AND WERE SCORED BY THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF SUGGESTIONS IN EACH OF 9 CATEGORIES GROUPED ROUGHLY AS (1) CONVENTIONAL, (2) SOCIAL OR POLITICAL, OR (3) ESSENTIALLY NO SUGGESTIONS.
