Literary Appreciation of Adolescents.
Foreman, Earl
Designed to assess the extent of adolescents' literary awareness of detail and of characterization, and their sense of the purpose and continuity in written responses to story selections, the Literary Appreciation of Adolescents measure was constructed. Three scales measure those three factors, with each scale being scored on a five-point basis and the highest possible score being fifteen. The measure scores written responses to questions about selections from three stories, each of which has three to five questions particular to it. The estimated reliability of the whole test, if three additional selections and sets of questions are used, is .89. Correlations between scales range from .63 to .88. Correlations between story selections range from .54 to .78.

A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Literature), title, author, date, and age range (junior high--postsecondary), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
