Measuring Children's Organizational Strategies by Sampling Overt Groupings.
Riegel, R. Hunt
This paper begins with a brief review of research trends in the area of organization and memory. A discussion in them presented their relevance to the study of children's processing abilities, and the suggestion is presented of a possible useful tool in the application of knowledge about information processing to the educational experience of the child. While the author's major interest is in the field of learning in handicapped children, it is suggested that young normal children may also benefit from such applications. The measurement tool described is The Sampling Organizational and Recall Through Strategies (S.O.R.T.S.) test. It has been designed to diagnose specific levels of spontaneous grouping strategy generation in such a way as to predict an appropriate educational intervention to enhance the use of conceptual strategies. The procedure for administering and scoring the test is described, in addition to a discussion of test interpretation. (BW/Author)
