Säre, Egle; Luik, Piret; Fisher, Robert
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v24 n5 p638-651 2016
The purpose of this study was to design an instrument for five- to six-year-old children to help measure their verbal reasoning skills and assess the validity and reliability of the resulting instrument. For this purpose, the researchers have created the Younger Children Verbal Reasoning Test (YCVR-test) and a control instrument, which have been used experimentally with 24 five- to six-year-old children from kindergarten. The instrument has then been evaluated using the Pearson correlation coefficient and Cronbach's alpha measure for internal consistency. Additionally has been evaluated the Cronbach's alpha with 129 five- to six-year-old children. The findings of this study indicate that the YCVR-test is an internally consistent and reliable tool for use in assessing the reasoning skills of young children.
