ABSTRACT
This in vest/got/on attempted to determine (1) the correlations among the Frostig Develop- mental Test of Visual Percept/on, the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test, and an experimental Visual Discrimination Test of Words, and (2) the visual perceptual factors that emerged when the data were treated factor/ally. The three visual perceptual tests were administered to 154 children from eight kindergarten classes. The orthogonally rotated variables for the present sample disclosed three visual perceptual factors: visual-motor skills, figure-ground perception, and visual discrimination skills. An analysis of the specific correlates of the three selected visual perceptual tests suggested that the Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception is comprised of more than one general visual perceptual ability. The data supported the presence of three distinct perceptual behaviors measured by the Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception.
