A Preliminary Pair Comparison Test for Measuring Aesthetic Judgment in Young Children.
Taylor, Anne P.; Helmstadter, G. C.
A pair comparison scale for measuring aesthetic judgment which could be used with four and five year old children was developed by having art experts independently judge for "aesthetic quality" color slides representing a variety of stimuli on an eleven-point successive category scale. The scale was administered to forty children on two occasions six weeks apart. The resulting data indicated that the scale is a valid measure. The reliability was not high enough to recommend the use of the scale on an individual basis, but was adequate for measuring group differences in research studies with very young children. Descriptive information for each pair of slides used as an item in the scale is included. (Author)
