Psychometric Properties of the Wide Range Assessment of Memory and Learning (WRAML).
A factor analysis study was conducted of the Wide Range Assessment of Memory and Learning (WRAML), a test developed from a test structure model of memory and learning. The battery is composed of nine subtests (three verbal, three visual, and three learning subsets). The sample consisted of 903 students aged 5 years through 8 years 11 months, and 1,460 students aged 9 years through 17 years 11 months. For the first sample, principal components analysis indicated a three-factor solution. A possible third factor was also indicated for the second sample. The factor analyses suggest a general confirmation of the model with a majority of subtests loading on the factors as predicted. However, several clear exceptions were found, indicating that the structural model was not completely confirmed. Further refinement of the subtests appears necessary. Test users are cautioned to be careful in generalizing beyond the present evidence for these subtests and indices. Two tables present the correlation matrices and principal components for the two samples. (SLD)
