COMPARISONS OF THE READING AND SPELLING ACHIEVEMENT AND QUALITY OF HANDWRITING OF GROUPS OF ENGLISH, SCOTTISH, AND AMERICAN CHILDREN.
ANDERSON, IRVING H.; AND OTHERS
A COMPARISON WAS MADE OF THE PERFORMANCE OF GROUPS OF ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH CHILDREN WITH AMERICAN NORMS AND WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF SIMILAR GROUPS OF AMERICAN CHILDREN ON A SERIES OF READING AND SPELLING TESTS AND A HANDWRITING SCALE STANDARDIZED IN THE UNITED STATES. SCORES ATTAINED ON THE PARAGRAPH MEANING AND WORD MEANING SUBTESTS OF THE STANFORD ACHIEVEMENT TEST, THE SPELLING TEST FROM THE METROPOLITAN ACHIEVEMENT TEST (1947 ED.), AND THE METROPOLITAN HANDWRITING SCALE PROVIDED THE BASIS FOR COMPARISON. THE DATA WERE ANALYZED FOR COMPARISONS OF CENTRAL TENDENCY OF TOTAL SAMPLES, VARIANCES OF TOTAL SAMPLES, CENTRAL TENDENCY OF BOYS AND GIRLS, AND FOR SPELLING ERRORS. A DETAILED DISCUSSION OF EACH OF THESE COMPARISONS IS INCLUDED. (HS)
