Reanalysis of a Meta-Analysis of the Validity of the Wechsler Scales in the Diagnosis of Learning Disability.
Inglis, James; Lawson, J. S. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 1987
Reanalysis of data derived from a meta-analysis of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised, using a learning disability index derived from a principal-components analysis, found that the test discriminated reliably between 9,372 learning-disabled children and their non-disabled peers.

Enell, Nancy C. – 1983
As the new special education Title 5 regulations for eligibility criteria are implemented throughout California, a major concern is their impact on the learning handicapped student population. During the past two years, the effects of implementing criteria similar to those adopted by California have been studied in a large suburban district. The…

Lawson, J. S.; Inglis, James – Learning Disability Quarterly, 1987
As part of a continuing dialog concerning the validity of a meta-analysis of 94 studies suggesting that there is a lack of any distinctive pattern in the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (Revised) profiles for learning disabled children, this article maintains the view that such differences do exist.

Comparative Efficacy of K-ABC Subtests vs. WISC-R Subtests in the Differential Classification of Learning Disabilities.
Glutting, Joseph J.; Bear, George G. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 1989
The study evaluated the utility of Kaufman-Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) subtests in differentiating learning-disabled children from students with other handicapping conditions, and compared K-ABC subtests with Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised subtests. Results showed that subtest scores did not enhance differential…

Relationship of the WISC-III and WISC-R for Students with Specific Learning Disabilities and Mental Retardation.
Slate, John R.; Jones, Craig H. – Diagnostique, 1995
Comparison of Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC)-Revised and WISC III IQs for 64 students with specific learning disabilities and 55 students with mental retardation (MR) found that correlations were lower than those reported in the WISC-III manual. Only Performance IQs for students with MR matched the correlations reported in the…

Reiff, Henry B.; Gerber, Paul J. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1990
This study examined cognitive correlates of social perception in 32 learning-disabled elementary students. Three subtests of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised and the Profile of Nonverbal Sensitivity were used as measures. Subtests for Picture Arrangement and Comprehension seemed to have an inherent relation to social perceptual…

Tempest, Phyllis; Skipper, Betty – Diagnostique, 1988
Norms were developed for Navajo Indian students for the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised, by sampling 16 percent of the Navajo school population from first through eighth grade in 8 schools in McKinley County, New Mexico. The norms, based on 539 students, help to separate cultural and language differences from learning…

An Investigation of Discrepancy Scores between Intelligence and WRAT-R Achievement in Mentally Retarded and Learning Disabled Students.
Walthall, Joe; Smith, Terry – 1990
This study investigated the relationship between measured intelligence and discrepancies existing between actual achievement levels and projected achievement levels in mildly handicapped resource room students in Arkansas. Twenty-seven students had been identified as learning disabled and 19 as mildly mentally retarded. Subjects each received…

Factor Structure of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-III for Hispanic and Non-Hispanic White Children with Learning Disabilities.
Logerquist-Hansen, Sally; Barona, Andres – 1994
This study evaluated the construct validity of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Third Edition (WISC-III) with children (ages 8 to 13) having learning disabilities who were either Hispanic (N=120) or Non-Hispanic white (N=120). Factor analyses found that the WISC III has a three factor structure consisting of verbal comprehension,…

Correlations of WISC-III, WRAT-R, KM-R, and PPVT-R Scores in Students with Specific Learning Disabilities.
Slate, John R.; And Others – Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 1994
This study, involving 64 students with specific learning disabilities, found positive correlations between the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-III (WISC-III) and the Arithmetic subtest of the Wide Range Achievement Test-Revised (WRAT-R), the KeyMath-Revised, and the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test-Revised, but not between the WISC-III and…

Performance of Hispanic Educable Mentally Retarded, Learning Disabled, and Nonclassified Students on the WISC-RM, SOMPA, and S-KABC: Short-Term Study One. Final Report.
Rueda, Robert; And Others – 1985
The study examined performance of limited-English proficient Hispanic students on a battery of psychometric instruments designed to appropriately assess linguistic minority students. Subjects consisted of three groups: 44 nonhandicapped, 45 learning-disabled, and 39 mildly mentally retarded elementary-level students. Instruments included the…

Goldstein, David; Dundon, William D. – 1986
This paper addresses the problem of heterogeneity of samples of learning disabled (LD) children by comparing five different systems for identifying homogeneous subgroups in terms of their ability to predict longitudinal reading and mathematics scores. One hundred and sixty LD children served as subjects. Three of the five subgrouping systems were…

Investigation of the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test to Predict WISC-R Full Scale IQ for Referred Children.
Avant, Anna H.; O'Neal, Marcia R. – 1986
A public school district in Alabama uses the Otis Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) in place of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (Revised) (WISC-R) as a screening device for students who are referred for possible special education placement. To determine the relationship between the two tests, Pearson product moment correlation…

Differences between Learning Disability Subtypes Classified Using the Revised Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-Educational Battery.
Davis, Jeremy T.; And Others – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1997
Sixty students with specific learning disabilities in either reading and spelling (Group R-S) or arithmetic (Group A), as scored by the Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-Educational Battery, were compared. Results (measured by the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Third Edition) showed weaker nonverbal skills and more counseling among Group A…
