REGIONAL EVALUATION AND RESEARCH CENTER FOR PROJECT HEAD START, SUPPLEMENTARY RESEARCH REPORT, SEPTEMBER 1, 1967-DECEMBER 31, 1967.
FRIEDMAN, MYLES I.
IN PHASE I (OF THREE) OF A RESEARCH PROJECT, 475 SOUTHERN DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN (RANGING IN AGE FROM 3 TO 6) WERE TESTED IN AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE DESCRIPTION, DEVELOPMENT, AND SEQUENCING OF COGNITIVE ABILITIES DESIGNED TO YIELD INFORMATION ON CHILDREN'S LEARNING WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR TEACHING AND CURRICULUMS. COGNITIVE TASKS WERE SELECTED FROM MORE THAN 50 PUBLISHED MEASURING INSTRUMENTS. TESTERS WERE TRAINED TO AIM FOR A CHILD'S MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE AS THE INVESTIGATORS' OBJECT WAS TO MAKE A CONTINUUM OF PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITIES. DATA WILL BE FACTOR ANALYZED AND A MATRIX OF TETRACHORIC CORRELATION COEFFICIENTS USED. THE RELATIONSHIP OF INDIVIDUAL ITEMS TO THE FACTORS IDENTIFIED WILL BE DETERMINED. IT IS HOPED THAT ITEM SEQUENCING MAY INDICATE A PATTERN OF COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT WHICH CAN PROVIDE A NATURAL ORDER FOR TEACHING COGNITIVE TRAITS. SEVEN APPENDIXES ARE INCLUDED WHICH GIVE DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT TESTS AND PROCEDURES. THREE OTHER SUBPOPULATIONS OF CHILDREN WILL BE STUDIED AS PART OF THIS PROJECT. (MS)
