Measuring English Language Arts Concept Attainment.
Golub, Lester S.
This report summarizes four English Language Arts studies sponsored by the Wisconsin Research and Development Center for Cognitive Learning under the project title "A Structure of Concept Attainment Abilities": (1) "Selection and Analysis of Language Arts Concepts for Inclusion in Tests of Concept Attainment," (2) "Items to Test Level of Attainment of Language Arts Concepts by Intermediate-Grade Children," (3) "Measuring Language Arts Concepts Attainment: Boys and Girls," and (4) "An Analysis of Content and Task Dimensions of Language Arts Items Designed to Measure Level of Concept Attainment." Results indicate that boys and girls do not learn concepts equally well; that some English language arts concepts which are taught are not learned well; that the most difficult category of concepts is that dealing with "Words in Sentences," the easiest deals with "Words," and "Connected Discourse" falls in the middle; that the concepts appear to measure the factor "Attainable Language Competence"; that the tasks appear to measure the factor "Language Processing Ability"; and that "Attainable Language Competence" and "Language Processing Ability" are two independent learning modes.
