Achievement Screening with Learning Disabled Children.
Bray, Nanci M.; Estes, Robert E.
Two validity studies were made of the Peabody Individual Achievement Test (PIAT) with 152 learning disabled and 115 non-learning disabled children (ages from 7 to 10 years). In the first study, Ss' scores on the PIAT, California Achievement Test (CAT), and the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) were correlated; in the second study scores on the PIAT and the Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT) were correlated. Results indicated substantial validity when the PIAT was used with the WRAT, the CAT, or the MAT as criterion measures, with highest correlations observed between the PIAT and the WRAT and lowest correlations found for mathematics subtests. Results suggested the appropriateness of using the PIAT as a time saving individual assessment measure with learning disabled children because its format does not require writing answers or reading mathematics word problems.
