A Test of Sentence Meaning with Answer Sheet: A Diagnostic Test of Syntactic Clues to Meaning in Reading. Revised Edition.
Marcus, Albert D.
Designed to measure the level of understanding of literal meaning attained by students in grades 5-8 through the use of syntactic clues within written standard English sentences, this silent reading test reveals a student's strengths and weaknesses in syntactic knowledge and thus helps the teacher plan a program of instruction. Reliability coefficients were computed for all 102 items for each of the four grades and for the total test sample. Coefficients ranged from .95 for grade 5 to .89 for grade 8. [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 (Language Development), title, author, date, and age range (intermediate, junior high), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
