A New Approach to Data Analysis for the Construction of Piagetian Tests.
Shayer, Michael
The special case of the Piagetian model is discussed in relation to test theory. Problems connected with the construction and analysis of a test based on Piaget and Inhelder's The Child's Construction of Quantities are presented, and related to a method of representing the item discrimination which is consonant with Piagetian theory. Loevinger and Lumsden's critique of test theory is utilized to achieve a representation of the test-space in two-dimensions. This representation allows an approach to testing for unidimensionality equivalent to that of factor-analysis and stays closer to the data. (Author/MH)
