Correlations of the WRAT and PIAT Reading Recognition Subtest Scores with the VMI And Bender Gestalt.
Vance, Booney; Gore, William V.
The relationship between word recognition subtests of the Wide Range Achievement Test and Peabody Individual Achievement Test with Bender-Gestalt and the Berry-Buktencia Test of Visual Motor Integration was examined with 27 children (7-14 years old) referred for psychological services. The Bender and Berry tests are among the most popular individual tests administered by school psychologists. Significant correlation coefficients were found among the scores for the total group. Findings from the study suggested the Bender Gestalt and the Berry-Buktencia Test of Visual Motor Integration measure visual-motor perceptual skills which are quite different from each other.
