Use of Freedom from Distractibility and Processing Speed To Assess Children's Test-Taking Behaviors.
Oakland, Thomas; Broom, Jason; Glutting, Joseph
Journal of School Psychology, v38 n5 p469-75 Sep-Oct 2000
Tests Kaufman's hypothesis that WISC-III Freedom from Distractibility and Processing Speed scores will be lower than those from corresponding factors (i.e., Verbal Comprehension) when children display inappropriate test-taking behaviors. This hypothesis was not supported. Encourages clinicians to rely on behavioral indices other than WISC-III scores when forming judgments about the suitability of children's test-taking behaviors.
