Abstract:

Several verbal and nonverbal tests and measures, including the General Classification Test GCT, Mechanical Test MECH, Arithmetic Test ARI , Clerical Test CLER, Raven Progressive Matrices RPM, age, education level, race, speaking English as a native or second language, modification of hand use, and measures of handedness and eyedness were used to differentiate between a group of recruits enrolled in a Navy remedial reading program RR group and a non-remedial comparison recruit group C group. These tests and measures were also associated with reading achievement attained by the remedial recruits as measured by pre- and post-test performance on the comprehension subtest of the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test.
