Obtained values did not vary by sex. (Author/RD)

Levy, Stine – Psychology in the Schools, 1982
Adapted the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test to facilitate administration to low-functioning autistic children who do not have a pointing response. Autistic (N=10) and preschool-aged children (N=20) were given the standard form and the adapted form. Results supported the use of the published norms for the adapted version. (Author/RC)

Bracken, Bruce A.; Prasse, David P. – Journal of School Psychology, 1981
Comparisons of the PPVT-R, the PPVT, and placement IQ tests were made with 114 educable mentally retarded students, 46 White, 44 Black, and 24 Hispanic. The PPVT and PPVT-R correlated for all groups, but neither the PPVT nor PPVT-R, correlated to a significant degree with the placement IQ tests. (Author/RC)

Naglieri, Jack A. – Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1982
Explored the relationship between the Revised Peabody Picture Vocabulary test (PPVT-R) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) for a sample of 38 mentally retarded children. Found the PPVT-R correlated significantly with the WISC-R Verbal Performance and Full Scale IQ scores. (Author)

Chavez, Ernest L. – Perceptual and Motor Skills, 1982
Spanish translations of English forms of the Peabody Picture Vocabulary test were compared experimentally. Spanish-speaking children scored higher on the English version. Significant interactions of trial x form and trial x language were found. This local Spanish version is inappropriate for use with bilingual children. Full standardization is…

The sample mean for the PPVT-R was significantly lower than for the PPVT. Additionally, the PPVT and PPVT-R correlated to a significant degree, yielding a standard score correlation coefficient of .83. (Author)

Allington, Richard L. – Contemporary Educational Psychology, 1981
Educable mentally retarded (EMR) children were presented an item selection task to assess their sensitivity to orthographic structure in printed English words. Analyses of performance indicated that EMR children do acquire implicit knowledge of orthographic rules and that this ability is related to the development of reading skills. (Author)

Naglieri, Jack A. – Psychology in the Schools, 1981
Explored the relationships of the Revised Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT-R), Peabody Individual Achievement Test, and the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities in elementary students. The PPVT-R appears to be most appropriate as a brief measure of verbal comprehension, rather than a substitute for the McCarthy scales. (JAC)

Matched groups of day-care and home-reared infants were assessed at 3.5 years old for aspects of emotional and language development. The data suggest that attendance in infant day care did not adversely affect the children's overall emotional or language development (Author/DB)

Mildly retarded children were instructed in encoding strategies or rehearsal strategy. Performance was higher for semantic encoding strategies. Seven months later the semantic condition also showed greater improvement after strategies were prompted. Performance on incidental learning tasks was enhanced for 13- but not 10-year olds.
