RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN AUDITORY AND VISUAL PERCEPTUAL ABILITY AND READING ACHIEVEMENT.
BUSBY, WALTER A.; HURD, DONALD E.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE WHETHER AUDIOVISUAL PERCEPTUAL ABILITY CAN ACCOUNT FOR READING ACHIEVEMENT. SUBJECTS WERE 120 PUPILS SELECTED RANDOMLY FROM 38 SCHOOLS IN ILLINOIS. PUPILS WERE IN GRADES 2, 4, AND 6. MEASURES OF VISUAL PERCEPTION, AUDITORY PERCEPTION, VISUAL-AUDITORY SHIFTING PERCEPTION, INTELLIGENCE, SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS, AND READING ACHIEVEMENT WERE OBTAINED FOR ALL SUBJECTS. THE REACTION TIME TO VISUAL AND AUDITORY STIMULI WAS MEASURED. CORRELATION AND MEAN SCORES WERE USED TO ANALYZE THE DATA. SHIFTING BEHAVIOR WAS NOT INDEPENDENT OF THE ABILITY TO RESPOND TO A SINGLE CHANNEL STIMULI. AUDIOVISUAL PERCEPTION AND INTELLIGENCE WERE NOT SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED. SCORES IN RESPONSE TO THE AUDIOVISUAL STIMULI WERE NOT RELATED TO READING ACHIEVEMENT. AUDITORY-VISUAL PERCEPTUAL ABILITY INCREASED WITH AGE, BUT WAS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED TO SEX, RACE, INTELLIGENCE, OR SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (CHICAGO, FEBRUARY 6-10, 1968). (BK)
