WAIS-III Percentile Scores by Education and Sex for U.S. and Canadian Populations
Longman, R. Stewart; Saklofske, Donald H.; Fung, Tak S.
Assessment, v14 n4 p426-432 2007
Tables are presented for the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Third Edition (WAIS-III) IQ and index scores by education level for both the U.S. and Canadian normative samples. This allows clinicians to provide more accurate identification of relative strengths or weaknesses, compared to expectations from an individual's background, rather than the general population. Because sex differences are notable on the Processing Speed Index, data for this measure are presented separately. The similarities and differences between the two national samples are noted, with particular reference to the relatively weaker demographic effects found in the Canadian sample. (Contains 13 tables.)
