A factor analysis was conducted on the Carrow Auditory-Visual Abilities Test for the purpose of identifying common factors measured by the test. Two sets of scores were used, one from a normal population of 1,032 children and one from a clinical population of 141 children. Two basic factors accounted for a good portion of the total variance. The subtests that loaded on Factor 1 were Visual Discrimination Matching, Visual Discrimination Memory, Visual Motor Copying, Visual Motor Memory, Motor Speed Accuracy, Picture Memory, and Auditory Blending. The subtests that loaded on Factor 2 were Picture Sequence Selection; Digits Forward; Sentence Repetition; Word Repetition 1, 2, 3; and Total. Subtests that did not fall clearly into either factor were Digits Backward and the two Auditory Discrimination subtests. Except for the Auditory Discrimination subtests, there were no essential differences in the factor matrix between normal and clinical populations.
