The Measurement of Ability in Reading: Preliminary Scales and Tests: Scale A for Visual Vocabulary


by Edward L. Thorndike - 1914

The scale to be presented here is, I repeat, preliminary and provisional, but I shall for the present describe it and its use as if it were in final form, since reservations, criticisms, and the description of assumptions would only confuse the reader. Later, the nature, defects, and limitations of the scale will be stated frankly. Suppose then that the members of a certain fifth-grade class are to be measured. Each of them is given a printed sheet containing the Thorndike READING SCALE A (shown on the next page) and told to "Do what it says to do," after first completing a sheet containing the PRELIMINARY TEST (shown on page 5).
