Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze factorially the Motor-Free Visual Perception Test in order to gain evidence regarding the degree of concordance between the subtests and the construct of the test. This study, also, was designed to ascertain sex differences in the factorial structures of visual perception.

The subjects were 100 boys and 100 girls ages 5 years 0 months through 5 years 11 months, enrolled in a regular public kindergarten program.

The SCSS Factor Analysis Program was used to analyze the data. One factor was extracted to define the generality of the MVPT accounting for 41 percent of the variance. The results supported the construct of the MVPT and no differences were reflected in overall performance of sex differentiated samples.
