Items for Measuring the Level of Attainment of Selected Classificatory Science Concepts by Intermediate Grade Children.
Voelker, Alan M.; Sorenson, Juanita S.
The procedures utilized in constructing test items designed to measure intermediate grade children's level of attainment of selected classificatory science concepts are described. Tests were prepared to measure children's level of concept mastery for 30 concepts, 10 each from the areas of biological science, earth science, and physical science. For each concept, an item was written to measure children's ability to perform each of the 12 tasks of a schema for testing the level of concept mastery. The items presented have been revised on the basis of a pilot study conducted with children in the public schools. (Author/PS)
