Semmel, Melvyn I.; And Others
To collect word association norms, 100 educable mentally handicapped boys (chronological ages 11 to 16, mental ages 7 to 11.5) responded to 25 nouns from the Mein and O'Connor list of words most commonly used by retarded children. The subjects were individually tested by stimuli typed on cards. The responses of all 100 subjects to the 25 stimulus words were tabulated. Alphabetical listings are provided of the stimuli; following each stimulus are the responses and their corresponding frequencies; the number of subjects failing to respond is also indicated. (JD)
