The factor structure of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth Edition (WISC-V; Wechsler, 2014a) standardization sample (N = 2,200) was examined using confirmatory factor analyses (CFA) with maximum likelihood estimation for all reported models from the WISC-V Technical and Interpretation Manual (Wechsler, 2014b). Additionally, alternative bifactor models were examined and variance estimates and model-based reliability estimates (&ohgr; coefficients) were provided. Results from… Expand
Construct Validity of the German Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Fifth Edition: Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analyses of the 15 Primary and Secondary Subtests
TLDR
Present EFA and CFA results replicated other independent assessments of standardization and clinical samples of the United States and international versions of the WISC-V and indicated primary, if not exclusive, interpretation of the Full Scale IQ as an estimate of g. Expand
Construct validity of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale For Children – Fifth UK Edition: Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses of the 16 primary and secondary subtests
TLDR
Primary interpretation of the WISC-VUK should be of the FSIQ as an estimate of general intelligence. Expand
Construct Validity of the WISC-V in Clinical Cases: Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analyses of the 10 Primary Subtests
TLDR
Examination of the latent structure of the 10 WISC-V primary subtests with a large, bifurcated clinical sample found that the general intelligence factor dominated subtest variance and omega-hierarchical coefficients supported interpretation of the general Intelligence factor. Expand
Complementary Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analyses of the French WISC–V: Analyses Based on the Standardization Sample
TLDR
Findings suggested dominance of the general intelligence factor and that users should thus emphasize the Full Scale IQ (FSIQ) when interpreting the French WISC–V. Expand

TLDR
The factor structure of the 16 Primary and Secondary subtests of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth Edition was examined and it was concluded that the WISC-V provides strong measurement of general intelligence and clinical interpretation should be primarily at that level. Expand

TLDR
WISC-IV core subtest data obtained from evaluations to assess learning difficulties in 345 children were examined and the correlated four-factor Wechsler model provided good fit to these data, but the direct hierarchical model showed statistically significant improvement over the indirect hierarchical model and correlatedFour-factor model.
