Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare language performance on three subtests of the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities (ITPA) of a Black population of children ages three years six months through six years in Portland, Oregon, with the standardizing population of the ITPA. These subtests are Auditory Reception, Grammatic Closure, and Verbal Expression.

The null hypotheses tested were:

  1. There is no difference in scores on the Auditory Reception subtest of the ITPA between the standardizing test population and that of Black children ages three years six months through six years in Portland, Oregon.
  2. There is no difference in scores on the Grammatic Closure subtest of the ITPA between the standardizing test population and that of black children ages three years six months through six years in Portland, Oregon
  3. There is no difference in scores on the Verbal Expression subtest of the ITPA between the standardizing test population and that of Black children ages three years six months through six years in Portland, Oregon.
