COGNITIVE DOMAIN IN STANDARDIZED TESTS Introduction This study is equipped with the proposal to identify the cognitive domain of children that is the methods of possessing knowledge in standardized tests. The neurological development of humans are briefed in terms of linguistic, communicational, emotional and social skill from the very beginning of their life. Transition of human cognition from infancy According to Horowitz , after birth, the children are equipped with fresh brain which allows doctrines on the basis of regular practices. Their lives start with prompt learning in every step. This fragmented learning will form a gradual development of their cognition. The principal learning interest lies in which linguistic ambience a child is in. What happens next is the gradual adaptation to the knowledge of that language and its culture. In communicational perspective, the language is automatically applied to communicate. Siegler stated that the emotional development depends on their maturity [...]
When reading Horowitz's and Siegler's article, think of how the cognitive domain that appears to be "compartmentalized" in standardized tests is in fact linked to each one of the other domains, and most closely to language and communication, social and emotional skills. When listening to the Brains of Babes, notice how the neurological development of humans, beginning in infancy - and even more so, during conception - interrelates with --and is shaped by-- all of the experiences of babies, infants and toddlers. Note the gradual progression of skill acquisition and how they are interdependent. In fact, many times you will notice how two "stages" are happening at the same time, especially during transition times in developmental milestone acquisition.
