Siegel, Linda S. – International Journal for Research in Learning Disabilities, 2019
Dyslexia and other learning disabilities are not being properly recognized and treated in our educational system or society at large. Unrecognized and untreated learning disabilities represent a serious social and economic problem, not only to the individual but to society as a whole. For example, antisocial behavior, as seen in prison populations…

Semrud-Clikeman, Margaret; Lorys-Vernon, Alison – 1988
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Revised (WISC-R) Freedom from Distractibility (FFD) factor and other neurocognitive measures were examined as to their discriminative validity in diagnosing children with Attention Deficit Disorder/Hyperactivity (ADD/H), ADD/H children with concurrent Conduct Disorder, and children comprising a clinic…

Nicholson, Charles L.; Alcorn, Charles L. – 1993
The use of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Third Edition (WISC-III) and its interpretation in educational use are discussed. To measure intelligence, Wechsler believed one must measure the various aptitudes that contribute to the total behavior of the individual. The WISC-III has six verbal subtests and seven performance subtests.…

Roid, Gale H. – 1990
The development and standardization of the third edition of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) are described. The existence of documented historical trends was a significant factor in the project to revise the WISC-R, which is the most widely used intelligence battery in North America. Development of the third edition…

O'Neill, Audrey Myerson – 1993
The clinical inference process in test interpretation is described so that people can more easily communicate about it, teach it, and learn it. Chapter 1 compares different levels (concrete, mechanical, and individualized) of interpretation of the same test. Chapter 2 offers examples of an often-neglected kind of data necessary for individualized…

Avant, Anna H. – 1987
A study involving 120 students enrolled in the Mobile County Public School System of Alabama was conducted to investigate the comparability of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) and the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) instruments in their ability to select students for placement in programs for the…

Coffman, William E. – 1986
Three new tests presented as alternatives to the Wechsler tests for children were described in earlier papers of this session. This discussion reviews the earlier papers and comments on the developed tests: (1) the Woodcock-Johnson test; (2) the new Stanford-Binet; and (3) the K-ABC. The Woodcock-Johnson battery, state-of-the-art applications of…

Guttman, Louis; Levy, Shlomit – Intelligence, 1991
Two structural laws for intelligence tests are discussed: one law concerns the sign of correlation coefficients and gives conditions under which all correlations between test items will be positive; and one law concerns the relative sizes of the correlation coefficients between intelligence items. A cylindrical structure extends these laws. (SLD)

Nicholson, Charles L.; Alcorn, Charles L. – 1994
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) has a long history, dating back to the 1930s, when it was devised specifically for measuring the intelligence of children through verbal and performance subtests. Intelligence quotients (IQs) are developed for verbal and performance skills. The subtests, their factors, indices derived from them,…

Witta, E. Lea; Keith, Timothy Z. – 1994
Although the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) is being rapidly replaced by the third edition of the WISC, questions concerning the construct validity of the WISC-R have not yet been resolved, including the number of factors it measures and whether the same constructs fit across all age levels. This study sought to…
