How to Use WISC Scores in Reading Diagnosis. Reading Aids Series.
Searls, Evelyn F.
The purpose of this bulletin is to acquaint the reading teacher with the organization and administration of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC). Procedures are suggested for analyzing WISC scores in ways that may yield valuable information for teachers who seek to remediate the student's reading disability. The bulletin contains the following chapters: "The Individual IQ Test and Reading Achievement," which discusses how the WISC scores should best be interpreted; "The WISC," which looks at organization, administration, and reporting of scores for the WISC; "WISC Subtests," which looks at the two subtests of the WISC-verbal scale and performance scale; "Analysis of WISC Scores," which discusses full-scale IQ verbal and performance scale IQs, subtest scaled scores, and analysis procedures with actual test scores; "Other Wechsler Scales," which discusses the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and the Wechsler Primary Scale of Intelligence; and "Conclusion," which presents some dos and don'ts about the WISC. Included in the appendixes are the WISC record form, the WISC data sheet, a list of abilities measured by the WISC subtests, and a discussion of the revised WISC (WISC-R). (WR)
