The Test of Cognition with Scoring Guide, Literature Review, and Description of Data Analyses in Progress.
Fryburg, Estelle L.
Designed to evaluate a child's receptive and expressive language ability, the instrument will contribute to present knowledge concerning the language development of both standard and nonstandard English speakers, explore the relationships of language development to reading achievement, provide a description of the language-reading relationship, and serve as a diagnostic procedure to detect and prevent reading difficulties. The test is individually administered in approximately thirty minutes, and a separate sitting is recommended for each of the four subtests related to auditory perception, visual perception, syntactic patterning, and drawing. [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 (primary), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
