Summary

Summarized are 68 research studies from 1970 to 1975 on the Revised Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities (ITPA), particularly as it relates to learning disabilities. The reviews have been organized by the following areas (the number of studies in each section and sample study topics are in parentheses): studies comparing the experimental and revised editions of the ITPA (two studies including the performance of institutionalized retardates on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test and the two editions of the ITPA); validity studies (16 studies including a factor analysis of the revised ITPA with underachieving children); screening, prediction, and diagnostic studies (eight studies including an evaluation of several methods of predicting full-scale IQ from the ITPA); clinical, ethnic, and/or social class studies (12 studies including an examination of psycholinguistic abilities of grade 2 children of differing socioeconomic and ethnic background); school achievement studies on reading (12 studies including reading and psycholinguistic processes of inmate problem readers); school achievement studies on spelling (two studies including the relationships between written spelling, motor functioning, and sequencing skills); and remediation studies (10 studies including an evaluation of the effectiveness of an enriched curriculum in overcoming the consequences of environmental deprivation). One-page summaries provide study information such as author, title, source, purpose, subjects, procedure, results, and comments. An additional section on short reports contains brief descriptions of six studies. (SB)
