dc.description.abstract The purpose of the present study was to examine the performance of normal adults on the Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure Test (ROCFT) especially with regard to procedural types, methods by which individuals proceed to copy the figure. It was found that (a) normal adults did not use the procedural types as outlined by Osterrieth (1944). Fewer used procedural types I & II and more used types III & IV than reported by Osterrieth; (b) the procedural type used was related to performance on both the copy and recall phases of the test with type I & II yielding better performance than either type III or Type IV; (c) copying strategy, as measured by Bennett-Levy (1984), was related to performance on both the ROCFT copy and recall phases with higher strategy scores yielding the best performance; (d) procedural type used was found to be related to the strategy score. It was concluded that both Osterrieth's procedural types and Bennett-Levy's strategy score are measures of perceptual organization. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
