WISC-R-Test Stability and the Practice of Psychological Re-Evaluations.
Elliott, Stephen; And Others
The study, involving 379 students (6-20 years old), investigated the 3-year performance stability of handicapped children from four racial groups (Anglo, Black, Mexican American, and Native American). Data were collected from the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Revised (WISC-R) and the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT). Results indicated that Anglo children's WISC-R test-retest reliabilities were higher than those for other ethnic groups; and retest WRAT subtest performances of all children were best predicted by initial WRAT subtest performances. However, overall stability of WRAT scores was only moderate. Results were discussed from an applied perspective in order to examine their impact on the practice of mandated special education re-evaluations. (Author/SW)
