Kline, Rex B.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v26 n8 p557-67 Oct 1993
This study evaluated the external validity of a measure of IQ subtest variability, the profile variability index (PVI), with a sample of 146 children referred for psychological testing. Correlation of PVIs on each intelligence test with achievement scores and indexes of discrepancy between actual and predicted scholastic achievement found essentially nil validity for the PVI. (DB)
