The Measurement of Logical Judgements in Adults. (A Research Study Aimed at Adaptation of Tasks for the Measurement of Logical Judgements in Adults).
Clearinghouse of Resources for Educators of Adults, Syracuse, NY.
To determine the relationship between reading comprehension and the measures of logical judgement and concepts of language, forty-one adult basic education students were tested using the California Achievement Test and Peel's tests of logical judgement. The findings include the following: (1) concepts of language structure vary in adults; (2) the degree of success on the language concepts measure covaries with the reading level for adults in a basic education program; (3) logical judgement was not found to be related to achievement; and (4) the results were similar across sex and ethnic groups.
