The Standardization of the Concepts about Print into Greek
Tafa, Eufimia
Literacy Teaching and Learning, v13 n1-2 p1-24 2009
The purpose of this study was to translate and standardize Concepts About Print (C.A.P.) into Greek, and to assess its psychometric properties. Particularly, this study evaluated the reliability and validity of the Greek version of C.A.P., and item difficulty and discrimination index and examined whether there were differences between boys and girls and between children who attended schools in Athens, Attica and the rest of Greece. The study found that the reliability value of C.A.P in Greek is high and acceptable for this type of task, showing that it is a reliable tool that Greek teachers can use to reliably measure 4-to-7-year-old children's knowledge of print. (Contains 13 tables and 3 footnotes.)
