Comparison of Reading Expectancy Sets as Determined from Selected Intelligence Measures.
Smith, Lawrence Lee
The major question of this study was that if the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) Performance Scale was treated as the criterion variable, what other tests would give the classroom teacher similar sets of reading expectancy estimates for the identification of three categories of reader performance: disabled reader, probable disabled reader, and able reader. Comparisons were made for the total study population of 120 second, fourth, and sixth graders, for the sample number for each grade level separately, and for the total sample number of both boys and girls separately. The sample of 120 subjects were given the WISC; the Stanford-Binet, Form L-M; the Slosson Intelligence Test; the Quick Test; and the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Form A. Data from the intelligence tests were studied. It was concluded from the data and clinical observations that the two tests which more reliably could be used as substitutes for the WISC Performance Scale for screening purposes were the Lorge-Thorndike Nonverbal Intelligence Test and the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test.
