A Map Drawing and Map Reading Exercise.
Feldman, David H.; Salomon, Gavriel
This educational research project is designed to assess an elementary student's quality of reasoning in relation to map skills and to determine spatial concept abilities. 21 activities are designed to test sense of proportion, scale, dimension, accurate relationship, and abstract thinking. The related topographical map, a Map-Study Scoring Key, and a Score Sheet are also included. Category descriptions for raters follow the map drawing categories of Piaget and Inhelder. An analysis of student reactions and responses from this particular study are evaluated according to this scale. (Author/JSB)
