Abstract

Research and study aimed at understanding the intellectual structure and functioning of the retarded and the slow learner has been minimal. One of the most significant contributions in this direction has been the previously mentioned study of WISC subtest scores by Baumeister and Bartlett which discerned the Stimulus Trace factor appearing in certain of the scores of retardates but not in those of normals. The present study was undertaken primarily to examine sex differences between particular subtest scores of the so-called Stimulus Trace factor in a specific group of retarded and slow learners in a particular locale. More specifically, the intentions of this study were to answer the following questions: 1. Is there a difference between the sexes in the total group on the Full Scale IQ's, Verbal IQ's, and Performance IQ's? 2. Is there a difference between the sexes in the total group on the scores of the subtests which are related to the Stimulus Trace factor? 3. Is there a difference between the sexes in the IQ group below 69 on Full Scale IQ's, Verbal IQ's, and Performance IQ's? 4. Is there a significant difference between the sexes in the IQ group below 69 on certain selected subtests of the WISC? 5. Is there a difference between the sexes in the IQ group from 70 to 79 on Full Scale IQ's, Verbal IQ's, and Performance IQ's? 6. Is there a significant difference between the sexes in the IQ group from 70 to 79 on certain selected subtests of the WISC? 7. Is there a difference between the sexes in the IQ group from 80 to 89 on Full Scale IQ's, Verbal IQ's, and Performance IQ's? 8. Is there a significant difference between the sexes in the IQ group from 80 to 89 on certain selected subtests of the WISC?
