dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to select, analyze, and revise test exercises in critical thinking. Specifically, the aim was to identify items that have power to discriminate in performance among children in grades one, two, and three.The research was planned to answer three questions: (1) Would sufficient items remain to form a critical thinking test after those items showing no discrimination were rejected through examination of the point-biserial index? (2) Would the relationships between the twenty types of problematic situations tested cluster into a reduced specified number of elements after elimination of those exercises that did not appear to be related to a given factor? (3) Would the factor loading structure remain constant after reading scores and grade levels were partialled out? en_US
