The construct validity of the IT FA was studied using factor analytic and regression procedures. Scores for young children on the ITPA subtests were factor analyzed. The resulting factor scores were then used in a regression with IQ scores. Results yielded four factors. Factor scores were then obtained for all subjects on each factor. When IQ was regressed on these factor scores, they were found to significantly predict IQ scores. The results gave no evidence for the theoretical framework of the ITPA, nor was there support for 12 separate and independent abilities.
