Is the GALT a Reliable Instrument for Measuring the Logical Thinking Abilities of Students in Grades Six through Twelve?
Bitner-Corvin, Betty L.
Reported are the findings of five descriptive studies in which the Group Assessment of Logical Thinking (GALT) was used as measure of logical thinking. Specifically, an attempt was made to determine how reliably the GALT measured logical thinking abilities and how well it predicted academic achievement. The reliability coefficients on the GALT for the five samples ranged between .76 and .86. In addition, the individual logical reasoning mode scores on the GALT and the GALT total score were predictors of academic achievement. The results seem to support the use of the GALT as a reliable measure of logical thinking. (Author)
