Sentence Interpretation Test (SIT).
Little, Peter S.
Designed to measure the ability of children to identify the meanings of structurally ambiguous or unambiguous sentences of English, the test consists of forty lead sentences: ten with surface structure ambiguity, ten with underlying structure ambiguity, and twenty which are unambiguous. For each of the lead sentences three interpretative sentences were constructed, one, two, or all three of which gave a meaning of the lead sentence. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph, "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Reading), title, author, date, and age range (intermediate), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
