The LAC Test: A New Look at Auditory Conceptualization and Literacy Development K-12.
Lindamood, Charles; And Others
The Lindamood Auditory Conceptualization (LAC) Test was constructed with the recognition that the process of decoding involves an integration of the auditory, visual, and motor senses. Requiring the manipulation of colored blocks to indicate conceptualization of test patterns spoken by the examiner, subtest 1 entails coding of identity, number, and suquence of isolated sounds in patterns, while subtest 2 entails coding of phoneme addition, substitution, omission, repetition, and shift within a syllable pattern. Both the LAC Test and reading and spelling subtests of the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) were administered at mid-school year to a randomly selected group of 660 students--representing wide background variables--from kindergarten through grade 12. Results showed that stepwise linear regression based on LAC total test as the primary predictor, with subtest components allowed to make residual contribution, yielded correlations with the WRAT at each grade level of .66 to .81, with an average of .73.
