Considerable debate exists regarding the accuracy of intelligence tests with members of different groups. This study investigated differential predictive validity of the "Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth Edition". Participants from the WISC-IV--WIAT-II standardization linking sample (N = 550) ranged in age from 6 through…

Guo, Boliang; Aveyard, Paul; Dai, Xiaoyang – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
The Wechsler intelligence test has four factors representing four components of intellectual function. In China, there are marked cultural, educational, and economic disparities between rural and urban dwellers, which could lead to cultural bias. The aim of this study was to apply the four-factor structure to responses to the Chinese Intelligence…

Factor analysis was applied to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Fourth Edition (WISC-IV) scores of 432 Pennsylvania students referred for evaluation for special education services to determine the factor structure of the WISC-IV with this population. A first-order, four-factor oblique solution that mirrored that found in the WISC-IV…

Conger, Anthony J.; Conger, Judith Cohen – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Measures of multivariate reliability were calculated for profiles of Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) subscales on three age groups. Profile dimensions based on reliability considerations were established and matched across age groups and with factor analytic dimensions. WISC was found to measure general ability and verbal and…

Braden, Jeffery P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
A procedure is proposed for determining whether correlations obtained between two measures justify the assumption that the measures are identical. It is intended especially for small samples. In the example, the performance scales of two intelligence tests were administered to 32 deaf adolescents. (GDC)

Redfering, David L.; Collins, Jackie – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
Forty elementary students were administered the Bender-Gestalt Test using two techniques: Koppitz routine instructions and the Hutt testing-the-limits method. The mean number of Koppitz errors was approximately two greater than the number obtained using the Hutt technique. (Author/BW)

Reynolds, Cecil R.; Harding, Richard E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
Six methods of measuring factorial similarity were compared with regard to outcome based on two large data sets, one for an intelligence test and the other for a personality test. All indexes yielded comparable results. Comparing factors determined at random, all indexes yielded comparable results leading to a conclusion of dissimilarity.…

Cuenot, Randall G.; Darbes, Alex – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
Thirty-one clinical psychologists scored Comprehension, Similarities, and Vocabulary subtest items common to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Revised (WISC-R). The results on interrater scoring agreement suggest that the scoring of these subtests may be less subjective than…

Simpson, Robert G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The usefulness of the Peabody Individual Achievement Test General Information subtest as a general screening instrument with non-retarded subjects is shown in a study of concurrent validity between the subtest and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised. Correlations between the instruments in two intelligence groups are discussed.…

Ozawa, Joseph P.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The Ozawa Behavioral Rating Scale contains six items related to distractibility and nine items related to impulsivity. This validity study showed that the Scale shows statistically significant relationships with the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Revised and the Matching Familiar Figures Test and may be appropriate for identifying…

Swyter, LaVonne J.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The hypothesis that four measures selected to represent the field dependence-independence construct would be positively intercorrelated was supported by the presence of statistically significant positive correlation coefficients in the total sample as well as in the subgroups differentiated by ethnicity, intelligence level, and sex.

Rincon, Erminia Lopez – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
The Kahn Intelligence Test, Experimental Form and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children were administered to three groups of Spanish surname children of varying language dominance to determine if the Kahn test is freer of cultural bias. Results suggest that the tests are not different in their cultural bias. (Author/JKS)

Silverstein, A. B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
The intercorrelations among the twelve subtests of the WISC were analyzed for each of eleven age groups in the standardization sample, using the principal factor method. Both the two and three factor solutions are assessed using the coefficient of congruence. (Author/JKS)

Spearman's general intelligence, or "g" factor, was investigated in a sample of 189 Black, 184 Hispanic, and 187 White children aged 6-11. The magnitude and loadings of factors on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (Revised) were similar for all three groups. (Author/GDC)
