Résumé

Une recherche a été conduite auprès de trente personnes déficientes mentales afin de vérifier la valeur prédictive, pour l’adaptation professionnelle, des résultats à un test de potentiel d’apprentissage. L’équation de régression multiple réalisée en utilisant les résultats à un test d’intelligence non verbale (PM-47) et à un test de potentiel d’apprentissage (adaptation du test des cubes de Ionescu et al., 1974) indique que seule la note globale au test des cubes est prédictive. Cette note globale représente la somme de la note spontanée (qui quantifie la perfomance obtenue sans aucune intervention de l’examinateur) et de la note transfert (mesure du potentiel d’apprentissage).

Learning potential and vocational adjustment in mentally retarded persons

Abstract

Thirty mentally retarded persons took part in a study intended to verify the predictive value, for work adjustment, of learning potential. The multiple regression equation was derived for the data produced by a non verbal intelligence test (PM-47) and a test of learning potential (adaptation of the Block design test, Ionescu et al., 1974) The results showed that only the total score on a block design test has predictive value; this score is the sum of two scores, a “without help” score and a «transfer» score (measure of learning potential).
