Sensitivity of Learning Potential Measurement in Three Levels of Ability. Studies in Learning Potential, Volume 2, Number 22.
Babad, Elisha Y.; Budoff, Milton
The Learning Potential Test was administered three times to samples of bright, dull normal, and educable mentally retarded (EMR) children. Training in relevant problem solving strategies was interpolated following the second administration to separate the effects of practice and coaching. As hypothesized, lower-class dull normal and EMR subjects gained more than middle-class bright subjects from the coaching and the practice. Following training, the scores of substantial proportions of EMR and dull normal children fell in the range of the nontrained middle class bright sample. (Author)
