Pezzuti, L.; Nacinovich, R.; Oggiano, S.; Bomba, M.; Ferri, R.; La Stella, A.; Rossetti, S.; Orsini, A. – Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, 2018
Background: Individuals with Down syndrome generally show a floor effect on Wechsler Scales that is manifested by flat profiles and with many or all of the weighted scores on the subtests equal to 1. Method: The main aim of the present paper is to use the statistical Hessl method and the extended statistical method of Orsini, Pezzuti and Hulbert…

Castro, Connie J.; Viezel, Kathleen; Dumont, Ron; Guiney, Meaghan – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
This study examined recent technological developments in cognitive assessment and how these developments impact children's test behavior. The study consisted of two groups: one tested with an iPad and another tested with the standard paper and pencil format of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-IV). Independent groups t tests…

Baum, Katherine T.; Shear, Paula K.; Howe, Steven R.; Bishop, Somer L. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2015
In autism spectrum disorders, results of cognitive testing inform clinical care, theories of neurodevelopment, and research design. The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children and the Stanford-Binet are commonly used in autism spectrum disorder evaluations and scores from these tests have been shown to be highly correlated in typically developing…

Weiss, Lawrence G.; Gregoire, Jacques; Zhu, Jianjun – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Many Flynn effect (FE) studies compare scores across different editions of Wechsler's IQ tests. When construct changes are introduced by the test developers in the new edition, however, the presumed generational effects are difficult to untangle from changes due to test content. To remove this confound, we use the same edition of Wechsler…

Nakano, Selena; Watkins, Marley W. – Psychology in the Schools, 2013
The Native American population is severely underrepresented in empirical test validity research despite being overrepresented in special education programs and at increased risk for psychoeducational evaluation. The structural validity of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth Edition (WISC-IV) was investigated with a sample of 176,…

Mielicki, Marta K.; Koppel, Rebecca H.; Valencia, Gabriela; Wiley, Jennifer – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2018
Working memory capacity plays a major role in many applied contexts, and it is important to be able to accurately measure this construct. The current studies tested whether the modality of administration of the letter-number sequencing task affects performance on the task. The letter-number sequencing task is a working memory capacity measure…

Huang, Lan – ProQuest LLC, 2015
It is widely believed that subscores can give us more information about an examinee. Thus they can be useful in planning instructional and remedial efforts, or making vocational or academic placement decisions. However, past research has shown that subscores are often not as useful as hoped either because they do not have high reliability or…

Merchan-Naranjo, Jessica; Mayoral, Maria; Rapado-Castro, Marta; Llorente, Cloe; Boada, Leticia; Arango, Celso; Parellada, Mara – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2012
Asperger syndrome (AS) patients show heterogeneous intelligence profiles and the validity of short forms for estimating intelligence has rarely been studied in this population. We analyzed the validity of Wechsler Intelligence Scale (WIS) short forms for estimating full-scale intelligence quotient (FSIQ) and assessing intelligence profiles in 29…

Cormier, Damien C.; Van Norman, Ethan R.; Cheong, Clarissa; Kennedy, Kathleen E.; Bulut, Okan; Mrazik, Martin – Canadian Journal of School Psychology, 2019
This study aims to systematically evaluate the scoring errors made by psychologists in training, in the hopes of providing strong, empirically based guidelines to training programs. Survival analysis was used to determine the number of attempts required for graduate students to achieve proficiency in scoring standardized record forms from the…

Parkin, Jason R.; Beaujean, A. Alexander – Journal of School Psychology, 2012
This study used structural equation modeling to examine the effect of Stratum III (i.e., general intelligence) and Stratum II (i.e., Comprehension-Knowledge, Fluid Reasoning, Short-Term Memory, Processing Speed, and Visual Processing) factors of the Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) cognitive abilities, as operationalized by the Wechsler Intelligence…

Roivainen, Eka – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2014
Research on secular trends in mean intelligence test scores shows smaller gains in vocabulary skills than in nonverbal reasoning. One possible explanation is that vocabulary test items become outdated faster compared to nonverbal tasks. The history of the usage frequency of the words on five popular vocabulary tests, the GSS Wordsum, Wechsler…

Greathouse, Dan; Shaughnessy, Michael F. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Whenever a major intelligence or achievement test is revised, there is always renewed interest in the underlying structure of the test as well as a renewed interest in the scoring, administration, and interpretation changes. In this interview, Amy Gabel discusses the most recent revision of the "Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth…

McGill, Ryan J.; Canivez, Gary L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
As recommended by Carroll, the present study examined the factor structure of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth Edition Spanish (WISC-IV Spanish) normative sample using higher order exploratory factor analytic techniques not included in the WISC-IV Spanish Technical Manual. Results indicated that the WISC-IV Spanish subtests were…

Mangin, Kathryn S.; Horwood, L. J.; Woodward, Lianne J. – Child Development, 2017
Cognitive impairment is common among children born very preterm (VPT), yet little is known about how this risk changes over time. To examine this issue, a regional cohort of 110 VPT (= 32 weeks gestation) and 113 full-term (FT) born children was prospectively assessed at ages 4, 6, 9, and 12 years using the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of…

Meyer, Emily M.; Reynolds, Matthew R. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
The purpose of this study was to use multidimensional scaling (MDS) to investigate relations among scores from the standardization sample of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Fifth edition (WISC-V; Wechsler, 2014). Nonmetric two-dimensional MDS maps were selected for interpretation. The most cognitively complex subtests and indexes…
