An Analysis of Classroom Objectives Derived From Cognitive Levels of Learning as Inferred From Selected Teacher-Made Tests.
Terrell, Cecil Roland
The purpose was to determine levels of cognition in instructional objectives as inferred from test items selected in Language Arts, Natural Science and Social Science teacher-made tests. A random sample of 153 tests used as final examinations was studied (grade level of the tests was unspecified). From these tests 50 percent of 3,291 test items were analyzed according to a scheme based on Bloom's "Taxonomy of Educational Objectives" and on a selected list of action verbs. Results showed a statistically significant difference between levels of cognition occurring for Language Arts, Natural Science, and Social Science test items. A statistically significant difference was found in comparisons between categories within levels of cognition for each of the three selected areas. (Author/DT)
