EFFECTS OF DOMINANCE AND CONTROL ON READING ACHIEVEMENT.
BOOS, ROBERT W.; HILLERICH, ROBERT L.
TWO DISPARATE STUDIES WERE REPLICATED WITH A PUBLIC SCHOOL POPULATION USED BY HILLERICH IN A 4-YEAR STUDY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF HANDEDNESS AND EYEDNESS. SUBJECTS WERE 273 SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADERS WHO REMAINED FROM AN ORIGINAL POPULATION OF 400. TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO DETERMINE EYE DOMINANCE, HANDEDNESS, CONTROLLING EYE, READING ACHIEVEMENT, AND GROUP INTELLIGENCE. THE GROUP WAS DIVIDED ON THE BASIS OF TEST RESULTS INTO THREE DOMINANCE CATEGORIES -- UNILATERAL, CROSSED, AND MIXED. CHI SQUARE AND T TESTS WERE USED TO ANALYZE THE DATA. SUBJECTS TESTED IN GRADE 2 AND AGAIN IN GRADE 8 EXHIBITED A SHIFT FROM UNILATERAL DOMINANCE TOWARD AMBIDEXTERITY AND/OR AMBIEYEDNESS. THERE WAS NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN READING ACHIEVEMENT AMONG THE GROUPS, NOR WAS THERE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN EYE-HAND DOMINANCE PATTERNS BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE SUBJECTS. TABLES, A DISCUSSION, AND REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. (BK)
