Experimental Test of Piagetian Concrete Operations in a Reading Format.
Kretschmer, Joseph C.
Designed to assess the ability of subjects to apply concrete operations to data in a reading format, and to determine if there is any difference with regard to type of paragraph or type of question, this test consists of four short paragraphs, each of which established one of the following operations: an additive classification, a multiplicative classification, an additive series, and a multiplicative series. Conformity for the paragraphs was insured in several ways, and the readability level measured at grade 4 by the Dale-Chall Readability Formula. The questions are divided into dichotomous categories: easy intension-based, easy extension-based, hard intention-based, and hard extension-based. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instrument 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 (primary, intermediate), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
