The Relationship Between Selected Subtests of the Detroit Tests of Learning Aptitude and Second Grade Reading Achievement.
Sherwood, Charles; Chambless, Martha
Relationships between reading achievement and perceptual skills as measured by selected subtests of the Detroit Tests of Learning Aptitude were investigated in a sample of 73 second graders. Verbal opposites, visual memory for designs, and visual attention span for letters were significantly correlated with both word meaning and vocabulary comprehension. Motor speed and auditory memory span were in general not significantly related to either reading measure. Results are used to question such subtests as bases to the prescription of instructional programs compatible with each child's best-developed aptitudes. (AA)
