Analysis of WISC-III Data from an Urban Population of Referred Children.
Wessel, Joan; Potter, Audrey
In the fall of 1992, Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-III (WISC-III) scores from 330 referred children in an urban midwestern school district were analyzed to provide information regarding score distribution of the referred population and of the ethnic and gender profiles within the referred group, and to examine changes from prior WISC-Revised (WISC-R) scores, changes in subtest scores, and correlation with current achievement test scores. Results suggest scale-score decreases consistent with those presented by the test manual and do not indicate any significant differences for ethnic or gender groups in terms of mean group differences or correlations with achievement tests.
