Voelker, Alan M.; Harris, Margaret L.
Test items were developed for assessing the mastery of 30 selected science concepts on classification. These concepts were drawn from the areas of physical, biological, and earth sciences. A schema of twelve test items was developed for each concept. Procedures used in the construction and revision of these test items are described. The tests were given to beginning sixth grade children and the publication includes most of the statistical data. Separate data analyses are presented for boys and girls. (PS)
