IES Arrow-Dot Performance in Two Montessori Preschools

Available from: SAGE Journals

Publication: Perceptual and Motor Skills, vol. 29, no. 1

Pages: 235-239

See More

Abstract/Notes: Preschool children attending two Montessori schools (26 boys, 23 girls at School A; 33 boys, 33 girls at School B) were administered the IES Arrow-Dot Test along with several other psychological tests in order to establish preliminary preschool norms and to test the hypothesis that I-scores would decline, while E- and S-scores would rise over ages 3 to 6. The data supported the hypothesis; however, there were clear differences between the two schools which indicated that much more than age and IQ were determining the level and pattern of the scores.

Longitudinal Corroboration of a Cross-Sectional Study of Development of Preschool Children with the Arrow-dot Test

Available from: SAGE Journals

Publication: Perceptual and Motor Skills, vol. 30, no. 1

Pages: 269-270

See More

Abstract/Notes: Children in a Montessori preschool were administered a series of tests at the beginning of the school year and retested on the same battery 8 mo. later, at the end of the school year. The children exhibited a mean gain of about 11 points on the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test IQ. They also exhibited a decline in Impuisivity and an increase in Superego scores, on the average, as measured by the Arrow-Dot Test. These longitudinal results corroborate an earlier cross-sectional analysis; and, as these results follow a prediction from Freudian theory, give indication of construct validity for the test.

Perceptual-Motor Training and Improvement in Concentration in a Montessori Preschool

Available from: SAGE Journals

Publication: Perceptual and Motor Skills, vol. 32, no. 1

Pages: 71-77

Abstract/Notes: 25 children in a morning class of a Montessori preschool were administered a program of perceptual-motor training which stressed control of impulsiveness and development of attentional skills. 24 children in the afternoon class were controls. All children were administered a battery of psychological tests prior to training and again 7 mo. later at the termination of the training. All the children (both groups) exhibited a mean 12- to 13-point gain in Peabody Picture Vocabulary IQ and a mean 13- to 14-point gain in Draw-A-Person IQ. In addition, experimental Ss exhibited mean gains on the Auditoryvocal and Visual-motor Sequential subtests of the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities and in Ego-control scores of the Arrow-Dot Test. Controls showed no such gains. It is concluded that the perceptual-motor training program might supply a useful adjunct to the regular Montessori curriculum.
