Canonical and Partial Correlation of Critical Reading and Critical Thinking Test Scores--Fifth Grade.
Follman, John; And Others
The purpose of this study was to examine empirically the definition and the relationships of critical reading and critical thinking. The subjects were Hillsborough County, Florida, fifth graders, predominantly of lower and middle class white background. Several tests, including two critical reading tests, and Cornell Critical Thinking Test Form X, the California Test of Mental Maturity, and Metropolitan Achievement Tests were administered in the fall of 1969. Various statistical procedures were performed and the conclusions can be summarized as follows: (1) critical reading does not exist as a separate thinking activity; (2) critical thinking also does not exist as a separate thinking activity; and (3) critical reading and critical thinking insofar as they exist, share a considerable amount of common variance, verbal ability. Full explanation of statistical procedures and correlational tables are included in the document. (See related document CS000103.) (Author/TO)
