Viezel, Kathleen D.; Freer, Benjamin D.; Lowell, Ari; Castillo, Jenean A. – Psychology in the Schools, 2015
School psychologists should be aware of developmental risk factors for children who have been abused or neglected. The present study used the "Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fourth Edition" to examine the cognitive abilities of 120 children in foster care subsequent to maltreatment. Results indicated that, compared to a…

Decker, Scott L.; Hale, James B.; Flanagan, Dawn P. – Psychology in the Schools, 2013
Research has demonstrated that many children have learning problems related to deficits in specific cognitive processes that are not adequately represented by a single IQ score. The administration of cognitive measures that include narrow abilities is useful in understanding specific learning problems and developing effective interventions.…

Keith, Timothy Z.; Reynolds, Matthew R. – Psychology in the Schools, 2010
This article reviews factor-analytic research on individually administered intelligence tests from a Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) perspective. Although most new and revised tests of intelligence are based, at least in part, on CHC theory, earlier versions generally were not. Our review suggests that whether or not they were based on CHC theory, the…

Calhoun, Susan L.; Mayes, Susan Dickerson – Psychology in the Schools, 2005
The Processing Speed Index (PSI) was first introduced on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale, Third Edition (WISC-III; D. Wechsler, 1991), and little is known about its clinical significance. In a referred sample (N = 980), children with neurological disorders (ADHD, autism, bipolar disorder, and LD) had mean PSI and Freedom from Distractibility Index…

Mahone, E. Mark; Miller, Teresa L.; Koth, Christine W.; Mostofsky, Stewart H.; Goldberg, Melissa C.; Denckla, Martha B. – Psychology in the Schools, 2003
Examines IQ test performance in 122 unmedicated children with ADHD, and 46 children from a healthy, comparison group. Children with ADHD had significantly lower Performance IQ on WISC-III compared to the WISC-R. In contrast, there were no significant differences between the WISC-R and WISC-III cohorts on Performance IQ or any Performance subtests…

The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Third Edition (WISC-III) and the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale-Fourth Edition (SB-IV), were administered to 20 gifted children and 20 non-gifted children to examine the extent of the difference in IQ scores obtained on the two tests. Results show that the SB-IV Composite Score was significantly…

Examines the concurrent validity of the Slosson Full-Range Intelligence Test (S-FRIT) by comparing S-FRIT scores to the scores of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Third Edition (WISC-III) and the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement-Revised (WJ-R). Results revealed that the S-FRIT scores were more related to overall intelligence,…

Comninel, Mary E.; Bordieri, James E. – Psychology in the Schools, 2001
Uses the Dumont-Faro short form to estimate the Wechsler Intelligence Scales for Children-III (WISC-III) Full Sale IQ scores for 45 special education students. Results demonstrate that IQ scores were positively correlated with the WISC-III Full Scale scores. However an IQ miscalculation rate of 44% challenges the utility of the Dumont-Faro short…

Watkins, Marley W.; Canivez, Gary L. – Psychology in the Schools, 2001
Analyzes the longitudinal factor structure of the WISC-III for both configural and metric invariance with a group of 177 students with disabilities. Concludes that the WISC-III measures the same constructs with equal fidelity across time which allows unequivocal interpretation of score differences as reflecting changes in underlying latent…
