Further Analysis of the Structure of the Revised Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities for Moderately Mentally Retarded Children.
Leong, C. K.
In two separate studies involving 98 and 59 moderately mentally retarded children (mean ages 12 and 11 years), factor analyses of the Revised Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities (ITPA) were performed to determine if the subtests corresponded to the theoretical model of communication channels, processes, and levels. In the first study, raw scores from the 10 ITPA subtests together with Benet IQ scores were analyzed; in the second study, the 10 ITPA subtests plus the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (Verbal and Performance IQ's), the Los Angeles Test of Perceptual-Motor Attributes and the Draw-A-Person Test were factor analyzed. Without loss of generality, both studies supported the channel separation in the theoretical model. (Author/CL)
