Although science educators conversant with
Piaget’s work have recognized the importance of
adapting instruction and curricula to the cognitive
level of their students, such attempts have been difficult
because of a lack of appropriate cognitive assessment
instruments. To meet such a need, a comprehensive,
objective paper-and-pencil inventory
was investigated using 542 subjects, 8 years through
adulthood, in order to determine its usefulness for
normal and retarded students. The results showed
that the inventory was acceptably reliable and valid
and had advantages over other Piaget tests. With
some suggested improvements, it was concluded
that the instrument had potential as an educational
and theoretical research tool.
