Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This study analyzed the VMI tasks according to theories of neuropsychology, from which we created a new scoring system. The models of cognitive development together with psychological constructs of figurative (direct perception) and operative (analysis and action) schemes provided the format for evaluating a child’s productions. VMI records of 39 children were scored using the new detailed system. Regression analysis found that the new scoring, and not the VMI, significantly predicted age.
