Silver, Stephen J.; Clampit, Michael K.
Journal of School Psychology, v28 n3 p251-56 Fall 1990
Presents table for determining relative rarity of quotient discrepancies on Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) to be used with children at higher Intelligence Quotient levels. Theoretically derived table has been confirmed through empirical observation of WISC-R standardization sample. Suggests table use should reduce overdiagnosis of purported learning problems and allow accurate identification of Third Factor discrepancies. (Author/PVV)
