Similes Test with Interview and Questionnaire.
Burt, Heather R.
This test is designed to measure children's reading understanding of similes found in literature books suitable for grades four, five, and six. The simile is presented in context and is questioned in multiple choice format. The possible answer choices are based on the responses in a pilot study which could be divided into nine categories. An interview and questionnaire also accompany the test. The interview is conducted to determine if children have difficulty expressing themselves orally and if the types of responses might be the same as the classifications on the multiple choice test. [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)
