The Effects of Test-Wiseness Materials on Standardized Test Performance of Preschool Disadvantaged Children.
Oakland, Thomas; Weilert, Evelyn
This study was an attempt to examine certain variables which apply to test-wiseness factors in assessing preschool and primary grade children. The study identified specific abilities which appear to be prerequisite for taking standardized tests, and to design curricular materials to facilitate the development of these abilities. It was found that the curricular test-wiseness materials had limited value in facilitating performance on the standardized test. However, teachers reported that the majority of children in the experimental group appeared to be more confident on paper and pencil tasks, and to remain task-oriented for longer periods of time.
