Reproducing the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth Edition: Factor Model Results
Beaujean, A. Alexander
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v34 n4 p404-408 Jul 2016
One of the ways to increase the reproducibility of research is for authors to provide a sufficient description of the data analytic procedures so that others can replicate the results. The publishers of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth Edition (WISC-V) do not follow these guidelines when reporting their confirmatory factor analysis results. Consequently, scholars have been frustrated when they have tried to replicate the results in the WISC-V technical manual. I explain how the WISC-V publishers set the scale of their latent variables and demonstrate how to replicate the WISC-V models using the R statistical program.
