Abstract

The investigation and development of self-report measures of cognitive ability have focused primarily on memory functions. We report on the development and validation of a questionnaire of visuoperceptual ability. A 45-item questionnaire was developed on a rational basis to assess self-ratings of visual perceptual and spatial ability. The questionnaire was administered to a sample of 68 neurologically normal adults aged 20-75 years. Reliability (internal and 6 month retest) for the questionnaire was satisfactory. Validity was established by relating questionnaire responses to objective test performance on measures of visual-perceptual functioning and nonvisual perceptual functioning. These findings indicate that it is possible to assess reliably and accurately the self-report ratings of visuoperceptual ability. Similarities and differences of these findings and those reported for self-report measures of memory ability are discussed.
