To Develop and Analyze a Non-Reading Group Test on the Concepts of Light and Shadows for Second Grade English Speaking Pupils in New York City School District.
Sack, Nathan
The construction and validation of a test to assess the concepts of light and shadows contained in the New York City Board of Education bulletin "Science K-2" are described. The final form of the Non-Reading Concept Test is a filmstrip with 32 color drawings. The first two items are trial questions to familiarize students with the test format. The test directions are given orally, and students select the best of three answers. A KR-20 reliability of 0.69 was obtained when the final form was administered to a random sample of 160 English-speaking grade two students. The correlations of the test results with Metropolitan Primary Reading Test, Form B and mental age determined by the individual Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test were 0.279 and 0.267 respectively.
