Intelligence Measures in a Preschool Sample: S-B:FE and K-ABC Relationships.
Smith, Douglas K.; Bauer, Joseph J.
The Stanford-Binet (Fourth Edition) (S-B:FE) and Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) were administered in counterbalanced order to a sample of 30 non-handicapped, preschool children (13 males and 17 females). The children ranged in age from 3 years 11 months to 6 years 2 months, with a mean age of 4 years 11 months. Mean scores on the global scales of both tests, the factor scores of the S-B:FE (as proposed by J. Sattler) and the supplementary scales of the K-ABC (as proposed by R. Kamphaus and C. Reynolds) were in the average range. Correlations (corrected for restriction in range) between the instruments were strong with the test composite/mental processing composite correlation at 0.57. Global scales measuring verbal reasoning/comprehension, memory, and achievement correlated significantly with each other. Less consistency was present for global scales measuring non-verbal reasoning. Four data tables are included. (Author/TJH)
