As a standardization of the WAIS-IV incidental recall component was not provided by the test publisher, clinicians wishing to interpret these scores might rely, as a rough guide, on norms from the WAIS-III or the results of studies on a variety of clinical samples that completed the WAIS or WAIS-R.
The WAIS and WAIS-R Digit Symbol subtest difference averaged 1.
En este trabajo se persigue averiguar si existe concordancia estadistica y en que medida, entre los diagnosticos de DC obtenidos a traves del MMSE y del WAIS-R.
In addition, Frisch and Jessop (1989) conducted a study that assessed the capability of the Shipley and Wonderlic Personnel Test in predicting Full Scale WAIS-R IQ scores using a sample of 34 male psychiatric inpatients.
Whereas Ryan and his colleagues have analyzed WAIS-R aging data for an old-age sample that includes adults in their 80s, their sample was not representative of the U.
The WAIS-R subtest regroupings examined in this study were selected from the WAIS-R Computer Report (Nicholson, 1982), a computerized WAIS-R data analysis and report preparation program and the research of Bannatyne (1968, 1971, 1974; Cohen, 1959; Kaufman, 1975, 1976, 1981; Lutey, 1977; Nicholson & Alcorn, 1980, 1985; Nicholson, 1990; Rugel, 1973; Smith, Coleman, Dokecki & Davis, 1977; Schiff, Kaufman and Kaufman, 1981, and Zimmerman & Woo-Sam, 1973).
To test this alternative model, Deary (1993) constructed a correlated factors model of WAIS-R subtests in which all Verbal subtests were constrained to load only on the verbal factor (which was equated with crystallized ability) and all Performance subtests were constrained to load only on the performance factor (which was equated with fluid ability).
Also various other instruments that may be used instead of a WAIS-R short form are reviewed.
A regression equation to predict premorbid IQ from the NART has been developed (Nelson & McKenna, 1975), and is a better predictor of premorbid functioning than the WAIS-R Vocabulary subtest (Collins, 2000; Petito, 2000).
