The modern language aptitude test local irish norms

, : The modern language aptitude test local irish norms. Irish Journal of Psychology 4(2): 101-108

In the absence of Irish norms for the MLAT (Modern Language Aptitude Test), the practitioner requires guidelines in arriving at a judgement of the individual's language aptitude. A study on a small (92) sample of NIHE National Institute of Higher Education undergraduates provides information relevant to the practitioner: local norms, sex differences, concurrent validities and internal consistency reliabilities are reported, and brief comparisons with the most similar USA norm sample are made.
