Computerized Preliminary Screening of Children With Learning Disabilities

John F. Brosseau, Janette M. Fox, Eugene Romaniuk

Abstract


A computerized program was developed to screen students with learning disabilities, using standardized tests from student records. The selection method utilizes the Tinker-Bond Formula:

(# years in school) x (I.Q. Score)/100 + 1 = reading expectancy.

The expected reading level is compared to the child's actual reading level on standardized test. Children who are one-third or more behind their expected reading level would be identified as having a possible learning disability.
