Structural and Linguistic Variables that Contribute to Difficulty in the Judgment of Deductive Arguments of the Conditional Type.
Shipman, Jerry R.
This paper reports a study in which eighteen structural and linguistic variables were identified, defined and used in an attempt to determine which variables accounted for a significant amount of the observed variance in the difficulty level of items on two different conditional reasoning tests administered to high school and college students. The use of regression analysis identified a tentative subset of variables which accounted for a significant amount of variance in the proportion of correct judgments of verbal simple deductive arguments of the conditional type.
