Relationship between PPVT and WISC-R in Children with Reading Disabilities.
Sattler, Jerome M.; And Others
The Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT) was compared to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Revised (WISC-R) in a sample of 30 children with reading disabilities who had been referred to a university clinic. All the children completed the WISC-R; nineteen children completed Form A and eleven children completed Form B of the PPVT. All the children took the tests within a three-week period. The PPVT Form A IQ scores were significantly higher than the WISC-R Verbal IQ, Performance IQ, and Full Scale IQ scores. The PPVT Form B IQ scores were significantly higher than the WISC-R Verbal IQ scores, but not significantly higher than the WISC-R Performance IQ or Full Scale IQ scores. In one case, the PPVT IQ was 43 points higher than the WICS-R IQ. Correlations between the PPVT Form A and WISC-R Verbal, Performance, and Full Scale IQs were moderately significant. Correlations between the PPVT Form B and the WISC-R were not significant. Results suggest that the two tests do not provide interchangeable IQs for reading disabled children. (Author/RL)
