A Comparison of WISC-R and WAIS Scales for Mentally Retarded Sixteen-Year-Olds.
Alcorn, Charles L.
Score differentials between the revised Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-R) and the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) were investigated in 25 possibly mentally handicapped adolescents (10 white, 15 black). Each S was individually administered both the WISC-R and the WAIS. Results supported the hypothesis that for mentally retarded 16-year-olds, the scores on the WAIS would be significantly higher than on the WISC-R. Blacks scored lower than whites on both tests. (SB)
