THE CONSTRUCTION OF A TRAFFIC TEST FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN

The existing traffic knowledge assessment procedures may be divided into two categories. The first category consists of exploratory studies, which aim to gather as much information as possible about children's knowledge of traffic signs, words, signals and behaviour. In the second category of procedures are standardized measurement instruments that are used to evaluate educational programs. These measurement instruments are subject to rather stringent requirements. Necessarily, their content should cover the educational objectives of the program under evaluation. Furthermore, the content of these instruments should be homogeneous, they should be reliable and of known factorial composition. Since no test instrument for traffic knowledge exists that meets these requirements, a test has been constructed which is designed to be used as an evaluation instrument for an educational program aimed at preschool children.
