SEQUENTIAL EVALUATION OF THE WECHSLER ADULT INTELLIGENCE SCALE.
FOGLIATTO, HERMELINDA M.; AND OTHERS
DIFFERENCES WERE STUDIED AMONG NEUROTIC AND SCHIZOPHRENIC PERFORMANCES, ELICITED BY THE WECHSLER-BELLEVUE ADULT INTELLIGENCE SCALE (PICTURE ARRANGEMENT SUBTEST). TWO GROUPS OF 40 ABNORMAL ADULT SUBJECTS WITH INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENTS BETWEEN 84 AND 116 WERE TESTED. ONE-HALF OF THE SUBJECTS WERE SCHIZOPHRENIC. SUBJECTS WERE REQUIRED TO ARRANGE CARDS IN SEQUENCE. SUBJECTS' PERFORMANCES WERE EVALUATED BY FREQUENCIES OF SELECTION IN GIVEN POSITION SEQUENCES, REPORTED IN EARLIER STUDIES (ED 003 005, ED 003 006, AND ED 003 007). WHEN SUBJECT RESPONSES WERE INCORRECT, ACCORDING TO WECHSLER-BELLEVUE CRITERIA, NO DISCERNIBLE PATTERN WAS NOTICED FOR EITHER GROUP. THE FINDINGS INDICATED THAT ONE SEQUENCE (SERIES 5) DISCRIMINATED MOST SHARPLY BETWEEN PSYCHONEUROTICS AND SCHIZOPHRENICS. SERIES 5 WAS THE SEQUENCE USED MOST FREQUENTLY BY BOTH GROUPS TO RESPOND CORRECTLY. DETAILED RESULTS OF SERIES 5 PERFORMANCES WERE PRESENTED. PSYCHONEUROTICS DEMONSTRATED MORE CONSISTENT PERFORMANCE THAN SCHIZOPHRENICS. SUGGESTIONS FOR PERFORMING A SIMILAR COMPARISON FOR NORMAL SUBJECTS WERE ADVANCED. (WN)
