The Development and Implementation of an Instrument to Assess Cognitive Performance in High School Biology.
Benson, Bernard W.
An instrument, "The Assessment of Cognitive Transfer in Science Inventory," was designed to evaluate cognitive performance in biology. The instrument is based on students' verbal responses to a structured sequence of situations and questions. Items were classified in terms of a modification of Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. The instrument was tested on students sampled to represent a cross-section of biology instruction. Analysis of the data includes tests of independence of the classification categories. Estimations are given of item difficulty, discrimination, and test reliability. (EB)
