MANRIQUE MILLONES, Denisse Lisette. Psychometric analysis of the BEVTA in children with learning problems. Persona (Lima) [online]. 2007, n.10, pp. 199-212. ISSN 1560-6139.
The aim of the current study was to formulate a psychometric analysis of the Battery of Verbal Evaluation for Learning Disabilities (BEVTA), a psychopedagogical evaluation instrument with a plain framework designed in Chile. Participants were 447, with ages ranged from 7 to 12 years old, both male and female those were evaluated with the present battery from 1996 to 2004. The method was descriptive-psychometric with a comparative-descriptive design. The results showed that the four subtest of the battery neither have a high reliability nor construct validity but, on the other hand, presents validity related to the criterion.
