THE COLLECTION AND STATISTICAL EVALUATION OF QUANTITATIVE DATA FOR HAND-EYE COORDINATION WITH RESPECT TO DETERMINING ITS CORRELATION WITH READING DISABILITY AT BOTH THE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL LEVELS. FINAL REPORT.
KEAR, EDWARD; MACLEAN, GEORGE
THE POSSIBILITY OF A CORRELATION BETWEEN HAND-EYE COORDINATION AND READING DISABILITY WAS INVESTIGATED. CHILDREN FROM GRADES 2 TO 12 WERE TESTED TO DETERMINE THEIR HAND-EYE COORDINATION USING A PORTABLE TESTING DEVICE FOR QUANTATIVE MEASURE RECENTLY DEVELOPED. THE SUBJECTS INCLUDED APPROXIMATELY 1,700 NORMAL PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS AND 290 STUDENTS DIAGNOSED AS POOR READERS BY READING CLINICS. THE SUBJECT'S READING ABILITY WAS DETERMINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE STANDARDIZED READING TESTS ADMINISTERED BY SCHOOL PERSONNEL. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE DATA, AFTER IT WAS NORMALIZED FOR THE EFFECT OF AGE, INDICATED NO CORRELATION BETWEEN HAND-EYE COORDINATION AND READING DISABILITY ABOVE THE SECOND- GRADE LEVEL. HOWEVER, SINCE THIS WAS THE YOUNGEST GROUP TESTED, MORE WORK MUST BE DONE IN THE YOUNGER AGE RANGE BEFORE ANY CONCLUSIONS CAN BE REACHED. REFERENCES ARE LISTED, AND 6 APPENDIXES OF DETAILED DATA ANALYSIS ARE INCLUDED. (AUTHOR/BS)
