THE JOHNS HOPKINS PERCEPTUAL TEST--ITS DEVELOPMENT AND CURRENT STATUS AS A MEASURE OF INTELLECTUAL FUNCTIONING.
ROSENBERG, LEON A.
THE JOHNS HOPKINS PERCEPTUAL TEST (JHPT), REVIEWED IN THIS PAPER, WAS DESIGNED TO MEET THE NEED FOR A BRIEF, EASILY ADMINISTERED, NON-VERBAL INSTRUMENT TO ASSESS THE INTELLECTUAL FUNCTIONING OF CHILDREN. THE DATA ON THIS INSTRUMENT INDICATES THAT IT IS RELATIVELY CULTURE FAIR AND USEFUL FOR TESTING CHILDREN WHOSE PHYSICAL HANDICAPS PRECLUDE THE USE OF STANDARD INSTRUMENTS. FOLLOWING A REVIEW OF THE RATIONALE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CULTURE FAIR INSTRUMENT, THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE JHPT IS DISCUSSED. IT WAS FOUND TO BE A REASONABLY RELIABLE AND VALID TEST OF INTELLIGENCE WHICH CAN BE ADMINISTERED BY A NON-PROFESSIONAL TO YOUNG CHILDREN. THE ISSUE OF CULTURE FAIRNESS IS NOT SO EASILY DEALT WITH AND FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED. PRESENT STUDIES UTILIZING THE JHPT ARE BEING CONDUCTED BOTH IN THE UNITED STATES AND ABROAD. THE NEED FOR CULTURE FAIR INSTRUMENTS IS EXPLORED. THIS PAPER WILL BE PUBLISHED AS A CHAPTER IN THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD, VOLUME 2, SPECIAL CHILD PUBLICATIONS, SEATTLE, WASHINGTON. (SK)
