Abstract : Forty arithmetic tasks were sorted on the dimensions o difficulty and goal path clarity. Results demonstrated the feasibility of using the Thurstone procedure for the analysis of group tasks. Ten a priori task dimensions were identified and described, and a procedure for scaling tasks was worked out in detail. A group of 104 tasks was assembled in a form suitable for analysis. This group of tasks is sorted into 8 categories on each of the 10 a priori dimensions. (Author)
