21 kindergarten children completed the Stanford-Binet-IV (Binet-IV) and the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities. Kaufman's (1977) estimated General Cognitive Index (GCI) was computed from the entire McCarthy scales. There was only one significant difference among the Binet-IV and estimated GCI scores. Abstract/Visual Reasoning was significantly lower… (More)
Recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular dementia Introduction: vascular dementia is an acquired and persistent syndrome caused by vascular injuries in the central nervous system, altering the functions of intellect and cognition, which are essential for the biological, psychological and social balance on the individual. Objective:… (More)
The MMPI-2 was administered twice to college students under two formats: standard booklet administration and oral presentation, with the examiner reading the items to the students and recording their answers. The two types of administration were compared in a series of mixed-factor analyses of variance. No significant differences were found when comparing… (More)
Retest reliability of the WAIS-R for 18- to 19-yr.-olds was estimated for 44 undergraduates who took the test twice with 2 to 8 weeks between testings. The mean scores on subtests and IQs and the correlations of subtest scores and IQs were similar to the values obtained by Wechsler in 1981 with only two age groups, 25- to 34- and 45- to 54-yr.-old examinees.
Estimations of some relationships among scores on the "General Purpose Abbreviated Battery" of the Stanford-Binet: Fourth Edition and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-III were based on the responses of 14 boys and 18 girls enrolled in Grades 3, 4, and 5 and who took both tests. Of 13 Pearson correlations between the Binet IV composite score and… (More)
The Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence--Revised and the Stanford Binet-Intelligence Scale: Fourth Edition were given to 51 preschool, kindergarten, first, and second grade students. Twelve of 15 Pearson correlations between Wechsler IQs and composite and area scores of the Stanford-Binet IV were statistically significant. It is apparent… (More)
29 men (15 white, 14 black) who were inmates at a maximum security penitentiary were given the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised and the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test-Revised on which the full scale IQs correlated .80. This suggests the Peabody would serve as an effective screening test for this population.
