An Educational Test of Learning Potential Assessment with Spanish Speaking Youth. Vol. 4, No. 71.
Budoff, Milton; And Others
Compared was the relative predictive power of learning potential (LP) and IQ measures for 54 low-income Spanish-speaking students (grades 2 through 6) in a transitional bilingual urban school. Ss were administered the Raven LP procedure, the Semantic Test of Intelligence, the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) in Spanish, and the WISC Vocabulary Subtest in Spanish and English. Before and after participation in an electricity science curriculum unit taught in Spanish, Ss also took an electricity unity evaluation instrument. Results indicated that posttraining Raven LP scores significantly predicted performance on the minimally verbal symbolic level of the electricity instrument, that IQ scores were not positively related to postteaching electricity scores, and that the LP procedures resulted in increased performance levels on a reasoning task.
