The Structure of Operational Thought: A Replication and Extension.
Gray, William M.
To replicate and extend Grey's (1981, 1985) studies involving junior-high school students, "How Is Your Logic?" (a 26-item, Piagetian-based, group-administered written test of cognitive development) was given to 553 subjects, 10 through 48 years of age. Each item of the test measured either a specific concrete operation or a specific formal operation. Image analyses of the inter-item correlation matrix of the formal operations items alone completely replicated the results of a previous study, and image analyses of the inter-item correlation matrix of all the items together partially replicated the results of the same previous study. These results are interpreted as providing support for the contention that concrete operations and formal operations are defined by separate but interrelated logical processes. (Author/RH)
