The Relationship of Cognitive Tempo to Achievement in LD Children.
Loper, Ann B.; Hallahan, Daniel P.
The relationship between academic performance and cognitive tempo as measured by the Matching Familiar Figures Test (MFF) was investigated in 66 learning disabled children (ages 7 to 12 years). Results of a simple correlation analysis indicated the test to be a sensitive predictor of achievement; however, this relationship was substantially reduced when results were analyzed controlling for the effect of IQ. These results were interpreted as evidence for the necessity of controlling for IQ level in research using the MFF test to investigate learning disabled children. (Author/PHR)
