Ryan, Joseph J.; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1984
Determined the factoral strucuture of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised in a clinical sample (N=85) receiving vocational counseling and compared this structure to that reported by Silverstein (1982) for the normative group. Results showed a high rate of consistency with those reported by Silverstein. (LLL)

Barona, Andres; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1984
Used the demographic variables of age, race, sex, education, occupation, region of residence, urban versus rural residence, and handedness in the prediction of premorbid IQs for the 1981 revised Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (N=1,880). Results indicated that the regression equations aid in accurate estimation of premorbid IQ. (LLL)

Cyr, J. J.; Brooker, Barry H. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1984
Considers both validity and reliability simultaneously in selecting the best short forms (SFs) of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R). Results indicate that incorporating reliability as a criterion has a dramatic impact on the obtained best SFs. (LLL)

Adams, Russell L.; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1984
Developed and tested a short form of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) in 107 subjects. Results showed that when statistical corrections are made for item overlap between the two forms, the resulting correlation drops to .90 and that similar results were obtained in a cross-validation study.

Matarazzo, Joseph D.; Herman, David O. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1984
Analyzed the total number of years of schooling completed against the Verbal IQ (VIQ), Performance IQ (PIQ), and Full Scale IQ (FSIQ) of the 1,880 individuals who were used to standardize the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R). Analysis revealed a progressive increase in mean FSIQ with increasing education. (JAC)

Smith, R. Spencer – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1983
Compared the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) and the WAIS-Revised (WAIS-R) in a sample of college students (N=70). A highly significant test order interaction was found. The WAIS-R will result in significantly higher ability estimates when administered following the WAIS than the WAIS will when following the WAIS-R. (JAC)

Parker, Kevin – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1983
Factor analyzed the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) across nine age groups in the standardization sample. When three- and four-factor analyses were performed, the familiar three-factor structure (Verbal Comprehension, Perceptual Organization, and Freedom From Distractibility) was clearly visible.

Dodrill, Carl B. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1983
Compared the Wonderlic Personal Test and the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale for a sample of 30 adults first tested in 1976. The two tests were similar in reliability of clinical classification, but the Wonderlic demonstrated fewer practice effects. Despite its ease of administration, Wonderlic intelligence estimates appear stable. (Author/JAC)

Ryan, Joseph J.; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1983
Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised protocols from two vocational counseling clients were scored by 19 psychologists and 20 graduate students. Regardless of scorer's experience level, mechanical scoring error produced summary scores varying by as much as 4 to 18 IQ points. (Author/RC)

Grossman, Fred M. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1983
Performed computations for each of nine age groups to determine the frequency in the standardization sample of specific Verbal-Performance discrepancies on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R). Discusses the importance and possible applications of such frequency data. (WAS)

O'Grady, Kevin E. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1983
Analyzed the intercorrelations among the 11 subtests of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) in the nine age groups in the normative sample. Results suggested that the factor structure underlying the WAIS-R is complex and that a large proportion of WAIS-R performance can be explained by a general intellectual factor. (LLL)

Knight, Robert G. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1983
Discusses the significance of confidence intervals around IQ scores based on a misleading interpretation of the standard error of measurement terms provided in the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) manual. Presents standard error values and a table for determining the abnormality of verbal and performance IQ discrepancies.…

Zarantonello, Matthew M. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1988
Found subjects of varying levels of neuropsychological impairment, administered revised Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-R), obtained significantly lower Full Scale, Verbal, and Performance Intelligence Quotients (IQs) than did subjects administered original, full version WAIS. Indicated significant main effects for level of impairment for…

Eppinger, Michael G.; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1987
Assesses proposed new demographic information formulas for estimating premorbid Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales-Revised Intelligence Quotient scores. Investigated cross-validation of this index on a neurologically normal but clinically relevant criterion group and determined the neuropsychological utility of the formulas to discriminate between…

Gass, Carlton S.; Russell, Elbert W. – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1986
Compared the effects of depression and brain damage on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale Digit Span subscale and the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised Logical Memory subtest. Performance on both tests was substantially affected by brain damage, but not by depression. Implications regarding neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation are…
