The Development of New Measures of Cognitive Variables in Elementary School Children (Phase II). Final Report.
Asher, J. William; And Others
This report covers Phase II of a two-phase project concerned with the development of new measures of cognitive variables in elementary school children. The four tasks undertaken in Phase II were: (1) prepare, revise and describe instruments designed to measure the cognitive variables categorized as concept formation, language development, logical thinking, problem solving and response style, and provide a rationale for the particular types of instrumentation developed; (2) administer both the new cognitive measures and the selected achievement tests to the specified populations; (3) present and analyze statistically the data on both the cognitive and achievement measures, and interpret the results; and (4) make recommendations for further development and use of the new measures. Discussions of these four tasks comprise the report proper. In addition, there are 13 appendixes, as follows: I. Listing of Test Materials Submitted with this Report; II. Administration Procedures for the Concept Formation Test; III. Administration Procedures for the Language Development Tests; IV. Administration Procedures for the Logical Thinking Test; V. Administration Procedures for the Problem Solving Test; VI. Administration Procedures for the Response Style Tests; VII, VIII, IX, X, and XI. Statistical Tables; XII. Intercorrelation Matrices: Cognitive Achievement and Intelligence Variables; and XIII. Rotated Factor Structures, Cognitive, Achievement and Intelligence Variables. The Table of Contents lists the contents of the final report of Phase I as well as the contents of this report. (For related document, see ED 060 928, the Phase I report.) (DB)
