The Children's Interaction Matrix: Intermediate Form, Primary Form. Preliminary Manual. Research Edition 1975.
Drummond, Robert J.; And Others
The Children's Interaction Matrix, Intermediate and Primary Forms, are designed to identify the preferred work and content styles of children in group situations. These factors aid the researcher, teacher, and counselor in understanding the individual's preferred mode of behavior in groups as well as indicating the students' reaction to group situations. Primarily research instruments, the tests are based on the conceptual framework of the Hill Interaction Matrix (HIM) (1965). This is a two dimensional matrix which describes a person's preferred content and work-style modes of group behavior. The tests are based on the 16 cells of the HIM. Four items were included for each cell for a total of 64 items. The original item pool of the HIM as well as the cell labels were used as criteria for development and selection of the items. Items were simplified for children in respective grade levels and were rated by judges as to their appropriateness for each cell. The response format was simplified to a two position "Yes", "No" format for the primary form and to a three position--"Usually", "Sometimes", "Not Often", format for the intermediate form. Besides the tests, data are provided on: reliability, validity, factor analysis, norms, scoring, and correlations. (Author/RC)
