Overlapping age tables were developed, separately for males and females, to provide additional normative information for the California Verbal Learning Test (CVLT) and extend the normative data to persons older than 80 years of age. Participants were 92 males and 120 females with means for age and education of 70.58 years (SD = 6.98) and 14.92 years (SD =(More)
BACKGROUND Physical Activity Across the Curriculum (PAAC) was a three-year cluster randomized controlled trial to promote physical activity and diminish increases in overweight and obesity in elementary school children. METHODS Twenty-four elementary schools were cluster randomized to the Physical Activity Across the Curriculum intervention or served as(More)
Assessed alternate form reliability and equivalency for the Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test (AVLT) in a clinical sample. A test-retest, counterbalanced design was utilized with a diagnostically heterogenous group of 85 VA Medical Center patients. The mean test-retest interval was 140 min. Alternate form reliability coefficients were highly significant,(More)
We compared the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Third Edition Picture Arrangement (PA) scores via standard administration (SA) or vertical administration (VA). Fifty-seven college students were assigned to one of two conditions. Thirty SAs had means for age, education, and American College Testing (ACT) of 19.47 (SD = 1.14), 13.60 (SD = 1.16), and 22.27(More)
OBJECTIVES To perform a critical review of the literature on the mood and cognitive changes associated with subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH), with an emphasis on older adults. To evaluate these data against the Consensus Statement on the management of SCH from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, the American Thyroid Association, and The(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was intended to examine the extent of dissociative experiences that exist within a substance abuse population and to determine how demographic and clinical variables affect these experiences. METHOD A total of 265 male veterans being treated on an inpatient substance abuse unit completed a standard test battery that included the(More)
Nineteen psychologists and 19 graduate students scored two Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Third Edition patient protocols. Mean IQs and indexes were similar across groups, but the ranges for Verbal IQ (VIQ), Performance IQ (PIQ), and Full Scale IQ (FSIQ) on one protocol were 25, 22, and 11 points, respectively. For both protocols taken together,(More)
Exploratory factor analyses were conducted separately on the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence (WASI; The Psychological Corporation, 1999) adult standardization sample (n = 1,145) and a diagnostically heterogeneous adult clinical sample (n = 201). In the latter group, means for age, education, and WASI Full Scale IQ were 59.25 years (SD = 17.52),(More)
We tested the assumption that high amounts of intersubtest scatter on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Third Edition (WAIS-III) subtest profiles compromise predictive validity of the IQs for predicting Wechsler Memory Scale-Third Edition (WMS-III) indexes. Data from a sample of 80 male Veteran's Administration medical center patients were analyzed,(More)
We factor analyzed the Chinese revision of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-RC) in a sample of 59 individuals with medically diagnosed brain damage. The Chinese subjects consisted of 42 males and 17 females with means for Verbal. Performance, and Full Scale IQ of 83.88 (SD = 22.11), 75.49 (SD = 20.63), and 78.42 (SD = 21.97), respectively.
