Content Analysis of Stories for Curiosity Imagery: A Manual.
Greenberger, Ellen; And Others
This manual describes a method for the content analysis of written story-productions evoked by a standard set of pictures. The introduction sketches briefly the model of curiosity developed by Beswick (1965), the system of content analysis derived from it, and the reliability and validity of that system of analysis. It also describes a revised scoring system devised by the authors and provides some information on its reliability and validity. Since this is meant to be a "practical" scoring manual rather than a complete report on the curiosity test, more detailed information on its technical properties is furnished in a forthcoming separate publication. The manual is divided into three parts. The first gives general and specific scoring rules and examples of their application for the revised scoring scheme. The second section contains a number of excerpts from actual stories, while the third section gives the correct scoring of these stories and the rationale behind scoring decisions. (Author)
