Assessment of Reflectivity-Impulsivity in Primary Level Educable Mentally Retarded Children.
Singer, Steven; Smith, I. Leon
Evaluated with 22 educable mentally handicapped primary grade children were the cognitive and social dimensions of reflectivity-impulsivity (R-I) on match-to-sample tasks. Ss were individually administered the following tests; Matching Familiar Figures, Kansas Reflectivity-Impulsivity Scale for Preschoolers, and Test of Reflectivity-Impulsivity in Social Contexts. Results indicated that although EMR Ss demonstrated R-I distribution similar to that of non-EMR Ss, the first two moments of the distribution were different. Additionally, the Test of Reflectivity-Impulsivity in Social Contexts was shown to be a useful paper and pencil measure of social learning concepts, as well as a criterion measure of R-I in contexts other than perceptual tasks.
