Verbal-Performance IQ Discrepancies on the WAIS-R: Estimated vs. Empirical Values.
Silverstein, A. B.
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v41 n5 p694-97 Sep 1985
The accuracy of Payne and Jones's (1957) formula for evaluating the abnormality of test score differences was checked against the actual distribution of discrepancies in the standardization sample for the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised. The results appear sufficiently accurate for most clinical applications and support the formula's use when the distribution of differences is unknown. (Author/BL)
