Letter Directionality Test, Word Directionality Test, and Sentence Directionality Test.
Twohig, Brian T.
Designed to measure the subject's ability to discriminate among alphabetic letters varied over three spatial dimensions (left-right, vertical, and combination left-right and vertical), the tests can be administered in groups and take about twenty minutes to complete. Ten letters of the alphabet were selected for assymetry (for example, b-d) and matching (n-u). Each letter is represented in two items and is tested when the letters are in isolation, in the context of words, and in the context of words in sentences. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Reading), title, author, date, and age range (preschool, primary), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
