Validity of Arm Extension as a Measure of Dominance.
Palmer, Lyelle L.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v54 n2 p634 Apr 1982
The validity of an arm extension test as an index of language dominance of the brain was investigated. High and low achievers were given several measures of laterality. Agreement with other measures ranged from 35 to 75 percent, with a phi coefficient of .10. The validity of the test is questionable. (RD)
