Example text

The psychometric properties of the WISC-IV and the cultural and social– economic context of the child have been described extensively by Prifitera et al. (2005). Therefore, the next sections discuss the interpretation and application of the major scores obtained from the WISC-IV. In our previous two books on the WISC-IV, we have suggested that WISC-IV interpretation should be both a “top–down” and “bottom–up” process. However, we continue to argue that the basis for understanding a child’s cognitive abilities and how this relates to their particular needs is best served, not by the Full Scale Intelligence Quotient (FSIQ) alone, but by the index scores tapping Verbal Comprehension (VCI), Perceptual Reasoning (PRI), Working Memory (WMI), and Processing Speed (PSI).

20 or slightly higher with scores from intelligence tests. Inspection time (hypothesized by some to be a 1. 40 with intelligence test scores (see Deary, 2001; Deary & Stough, 1996). Performance on the PSI is an indication of the rapidity with which a student can process simple or routine information without making errors. Many learning tasks involve a combination of routine information processing (such as reading) and complex information processing (such as reasoning). A weakness in the speed of processing routine information may make the task of comprehending novel information more time-consuming and difficult.

Finally, how intelligent does one need to be to tell the difference between “placating” and “appeasing” another person? Thus, vocabulary is not a simple matter of reciting definitions of words. In spite of these considerations, however, the conventional wisdom is that a strong vocabulary is simply an indication of a high degree of crystallized knowledge. While Vocabulary and Information subtests primarily draw from the child’s knowledge base, appropriate use of the stored information requires a good grasp of the situation.
