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. However, the WAIS-IV CD is a new subtest (e.g., new number-symbol pairings and numbers appearing with equal frequencies in each row) to which the WAIS-III, WAIS-R, and WAIS norms do not apply.
Kaufman (2001) utilizou as amostras de padronizacao da WAIS-R e da WAIS-III para realizar diferentes estudos e verificar mudancas nas habilidades intelectuais relacionadas a idade.

Odgen et al (2003) assessed 20 Maori and 20 non-Maori participants with several neuropsychological tests, some of which had been modified to better suit Maori participants (seven words in the Maori language were added to the WAIS-R Vocabulary subtest and a Design Fluency Test was included).
Furthermore, Morgan, Sullivan, Darden and Gregg (1997) compared the KAIT scores of 60 college students with and without learning disabilities with Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales-Revised (WAIS-R; Wechsler, 1997) scores and found no significant differences between mean test scores.

a) failed to account adequately for the chance significant findings that occur when many statistical analyses are conducted simultaneously; b) used an outdated measure of memory when a much-improved test was available at the time of testing; c) failed to consider the implications of the experimental interdependency of two key variables that were significantly related to PCBs; and d) controlled IQ (intelligence quotient) only with the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) vocabulary subtest.
