DEVELOPMENT AND REFINEMENT OF A TEST OF CRITICAL READING ABILITY OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN.
ELLINGER, BERNICE D.; AND OTHERS
THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY DEVELOPED A CRITICAL READING TEST AS PART OF THE 3-YEAR USOE PROJECT 2612 CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE WHETHER CRITICAL READING COULD BE TAUGHT TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN. THE TEST AIMS TO MEASURE THE ANALYTIC AND EVALUATIVE ABILITIES OF CHILDREN IN REACTING CRITICALLY TO MATERIALS READ. CRITICAL READING SKILLS WERE IDENTIFIED, LISTED, AND VALIDATED BY 14 READING EXPERTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. REVISED ACCORDINGLY, THE LIST WAS PRESENTED IN CLASSROOMS WHERE ADDITIONAL CRITICAL READING SKILLS WERE OBSERVED. TRIAL FORMS DEVELOPED WERE GIVEN TO A NATIONAL SAMPLE. ITEM ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS YIELDED ITEMS FOR THE THREE FINAL FORMS OF THE TEST. A DIFFERENT SET OF NATIONAL SAMPLES WAS USED FOR NORMING THE FINAL FORMS WHICH WERE AGAIN SUBJECTED TO ITEM ANALYSIS. RESULTS ARE PRESENTED IN SEVERAL TABLES. FACTORIAL ANALYSIS WAS STILL UNDERWAY AT THE TIME OF THIS REPORT, SO RESULTS ARE NOT REPORTED HERE. SAMPLE ITEMS OF THE THREE FORMS ARE GIVEN. THE TEST WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR USE AS A DIAGNOSTIC OR ACHIEVEMENT INSTRUMENT BY JUNE, 1967. (NS)
