Analysis of Intelligence Scores.
A study directed toward the education of preschool children is presented. This study, the Appalachia Preschool Education Program, was designed to affect the performance of children aged 3, 4, and 5 in four skill areas: orienting and attending, motor activity, language, and cognition. One of the instruments used in the evaluation of the program was the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT). Results of the administration of that test to children in the Preschool Education Program are presented. The report is divided into three sections. The first describes the test and its administration; the second presents the analysis of test data and compares the performance of children in three treatment groups and one control group. The third section explains and defends the use of post-test PPVT scores as a covariate in analyzing results of testing used in other instruments. (Author/CK)
