Recognition of Linguistic Structures Test with Answer Sheets and Difficulty and Discrimination Indices for All Items in Forms A and B.
DeLancey, Robert W.
Designed to determine to what degree the reader's awareness of recognition of certain structural aspects of written English is a factor in reading comprehension, this measure defines four word classes (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs) in syntactical or formal terms rather than in semantic terms. Each item in the test consists of two sentences: the first sentence contains nonsense words identifiable by form class; the second sentence contains a blank and the pupil is to select his answer from among four word choices. Reliability was calculated at .825, and difficulty and discrimination indices were obtained and are included in the 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, junior high), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
