Deep Structure Recovery Test (D. S. R. T.).
Simons, Herbert D.
Designed to measure children's skill at recovering the deep structure relationships of sentences, the test contains twenty-five groups of three sentences and directs the children to circle the sentence which has a different meaning within each group. Means and standard deviations are listed by sex, and content validity is established for the test by stating six assumptions on which the ability to recover deep structure rests and by discussing each assumption with regard to the test. Reliability was established by the Kuder-Richardson 20, which resulted in a coefficient of .7964.

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)
