Al igual que el WISC-R, el desempeno del nino en las diferentes sub-pruebas se resume en tres puntajes compuestos, a saber: el coeficiente intelectual Verbal, de Ejecucion y Total, que proveen estimaciones de la capacidad intelectual del individuo.
Esta escala comprende las 12 sub-pruebas del WISC-R organizadas en dos subgrupos, las de CI Verbal: Informacion, Analogias, Aritmetica, Vocabulario, Comprension y Retencion de Digitos; y las de CI de Ejecucion: Completacion de Figuras, Claves, Ordenamiento de Historia, Construccion con Cubos, Ensamblaje de Objetos, Laberintos; se agrega una subprueba nueva: Busqueda de Simbolos.
Bannatyne (28) points out that in the assessment of children with SLD, a classification based on the discrepancy between verbal and performance scores in WISC-R
is not sufficient.
Specifically, based on data from the 362 children in the American WISC-R
standardization sample who scored 120 or above on the verbal, manipulative or full scale IQ indexes, Willson, Gilberg and Reynolds (1982) found that a univariate model called Verbal Ability, was the best fit.
It was found that the WISC-R
Verbal/Performance IQ discrepancy showed up reliably more often among delinquents than among controls.
The WISC-III Full Scale Score correlates highly with that of the WISC-R
(Sevier, Bain, & Hildman, 1994; Wechsler, 1991).
Based on previous research with the WISC-R
and SB-LM, the newest editions with Australian adaptations may be expected to lead to higher mean IQ scores than the normative U.
During the second session, the WISC-R
was administered to control subjects following standard administration as specified in the manual.
Factor analysis of the WISC-R
at eleven age levels between 6 1/2 and 16 1/2 years.
Reparameterization of WISC-R
Even though readministration of the WISC-R
might be unnecessary in a reevaluation, some form of assessment has been deemed essential (USDHEW, 1977).
In their most recent article on this unique adoption study, Capron and Duyme (1996) analyzed their WISC-R
data at the level of the separate subtests.
