Multidimensional Scaling of the Cognitive Control Principle-Equivalence Range and Implications for Reading Comprehension.
Maroldo, Georgette K.
This study investigated (1) relationships between reading comprehension, IQ, and equivalence range (ER) and (2) categorizing styles through multidimensional scaling and varimax rotation analysis. One hundred and six male and 97 female sixth-graders comprised three reading groups according to Metropolitan Achievement Test, Reading subtest, and Otis Quick Scoring Mental Ability Test. Alternate forms of Object-Sorting Test determined categorizing ability. Results show reading comprehension relates to two ER measures for female poor readers; intellectual ability to one ER measure for female good and poor readers and to another ER measure for overall good, overall poor, and male poor readers. Multidimensional scaling and varimax rotation disclose somewhat similar categorizing styles of good and average readers, while both seem different from that of poor readers. (Author)
