ADAPT Program -- Accent on Developing Abstract Processes of Thought


Date of this Version



The evaluation of the ADAPT program for the academic year 1977–78 will be based on pre- and post-test data for 19 ADAPT students and 24 control students on four measures—the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire, the Self Description Inventory, the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal, and a test of Formal Operational Reasoning—as well as an attitude questionnaire given to both groups at the end of the year. Detailed analyses of the results from both the ADAPT program and the other Piagetian programs described in this volume are currently being performed by Carol Tomlinson- Keasey, who is now at the University of California-Riverside. We can at this point, however, briefly describe the measures used and present some preliminary results.
