Almstrum, Vicki L.
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v18 n3 p205-24 1999
Describes a simple 16-item instrument, the Propositional Logic Test (PLT), that is based on Piagetian theory and a study that explored the use of the PLT in diagnosing student misunderstandings. Analysis of individual student responses revealed a number of systematic errors in interpreting the logical operations in the PLT items. (Contains 23 references.) (Author/ASK)
