Morpheme Knowledge Test.
Shepherd, James F.
Designed to measure a person's knowledge of commonly used prefixes and root words, this test is composed of the twelve most frequently occurring prefixes and the twelve most frequently occurring root words derived from Latin. During the untimed test, students are directed to select the best meanings for prefixes and other word parts. Content validity was established by reliance on the blueprint for the test and by submitting the instrument to the judgment of three language experts. The coefficient alpha reliability as calculated on the normative data was .75. [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 (senior high, postsecondary, adult), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
