ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to investigate the predictive validity of the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test as it relates to achievement in reading and math. Fifty-one third grade pupils' reading and math achievement test scores were separated into top and bottom 27% and were compared with the Bender Gestalt test (BVMGT) scores. No significant differences were found for total Bender Gestalt test performance. Integration errors were significantly more prevalent in the low reading achievement groups. The validity of using the Bender Gestalt test as a predictor of reading and math achievement for regular third grade pupils was further challenged.
