Abstract:My hypothesis is that students will score higher on a logic test when it is presented in a positive manner. After preliminary testing, I created two logic tests of roughly equal difficulty. I alternated the order they were presented to 5th through 8th grade students, and, using statistics from preliminary testing, gave the impression that the first test was easier. The results were inconclusive.
