Cognitive Profile Analysis: A Shared Professional Myth.
Watkins, Marley W.
School Psychology Quarterly, v15 n4 p465-79 Win 2000
Reviews the results of four studies included in this issue of "School Psychology Quarterly" which found all four cognitive profile reports lacking reliability, validity, or diagnostic utility. Argues that ipsative methods are inferior to normative methods in cognitive assessment. Recommends that psychologists eschew the application of cognitive test profiles for differential diagnosis and remediation. (Contains 66 references and 4 tables.) (Author/GCP)
