An Experimental Study of Visual Perceptual Training and Readiness Scores with Certain First-Grade Children.
Cowles, James D.
The effectiveness of specific visual perceptual training on readiness scores was studied. Three different groups of 27 randomly selected first grade black pupils participated in this investigation over a 9-week period. The experimental group received specific visual perceptual training drawn from the Frostig Developmental Program in Visual Perception; the instructional control group had listening activities; and the control group received no specific treatment. Pretest readiness scores indicated equality among groups. Posttest analysis indicated there was a statistically significant difference between posttest scores of the experimental group and the instructional control group, and between the experimental group and the control group. These results proved the effectiveness of the Developmental Program in Visual Perception in improving readiness as measured by the Metropolitan Readiness Tests, Forms A and B. The results also indicated that the effect of visual perception treatment rather than the effect of interaction with the investigator was operative. (DO)
