A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN READING ACHIEVEMENT AND SENSE MODALITY SHIFTING.
HURD, DONALD E.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VISUAL AND AUDITORY SINGULAR MODAL RESPONSES AND MODAL SHIFTING BEHAVIOR TO READING ACHIEVEMENT WITH CONTROL FOR SUCH VARIABLES AS INTELLIGENCE, AGE, SEX, AND SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS. SUBJECTS WERE 120 SECOND, FOURTH, AND SIXTH GRADERS FROM PEORIA, ILLINOIS, PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. MEASURES OF THE FOLLOWING VARIABLES WERE OBTAINED FOR EACH STUDENT--AUDITORY AND VISUAL REACTION TIMES, VISUAL-AUDITORY SHIFTING AND SINGULAR MODAL AUDITORY AND VISUAL RESPONSE, INTELLIGENCE, SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS, AND READING ACHIEVEMENT. CORRELATIONS AND T TESTS WERE USED TO ANALYZE THE DATA. MODAL SHIFTING WAS INDEPENDENT OF SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS. RANDOM RELATIONSHIPS EXISTED BETWEEN SENSE MODALITY SHIFTING AND READING ACHIEVEMENT. DIFFERENCES WERE NOT FOUND BETWEEN REACTION TIMES TO THE SINGULAR VISUAL AND AUDITORY CHANNELS AND THE SHIFTING BETWEEN THE TWO CHANNELS OF COMMUNICATION. REFERENCES AND TABLES ARE INCLUDED. (BK)
