  pages={1061 - 1062}
The results of 10 studies of the WISC subtest patterns of retardates are summarized, and an interpretation of the findings offered in terms of the factor structure of the test. 
A Short Form of the WISC for Use with the Mentally Retarded
A short form of the WISC was investigated for use with mentally retarded children and correlations ranged from .80 on Picture Completion to .90 on Block Design with correlation of .95 for the Verbal, Performance, and Full Scale respectively. Expand

The rank order of the WISC-R subtests supports the concept of distinct patterns for these exceptional children and links between the present samples' subtests patterns and previous findings are reported. Expand
Age Differences in WISC-R Subtest Ranks of Children Experiencing Academic Difficulties: A Replication
WISC-R subtest scores of 162 children referred for academic difficulties were analyzed for patterns in subtest ranks to replicate an earlier study. As in the first study, differences seem to beExpand
Age Differences in WISC-R Subtest Ranks of Children Experiencing Academic Difficulties
No over-all differences in subtest ranks between children low and high in intelligence were found, but differences were discovered which seemed to be related to chronological age, and the implications for profile analysis are discussed. Expand
Stability of WISC—R Scores for a Sample of Learning Disabled Children
Analysis indicated a decrease over time in VerbalIQs, Full Scale IQs, and Bannatyne's Conceptual category, confirming previous findings. Expand
Investigation of the WISC-R for use with retarded children: Correlation with the 1972 Stanford-Binet and comparison of WISC and WISC-R profiles
A group of 80 mentally retarded youngsters, aged 6 to 16, was tested on the WISC-R, primarily to assess the continuity of measurement between the old and new WISCs. The WISC-R IQs correlated .65 toExpand
Variations in WISC—R Patterns of Learning Disabled Children
The WISC—R was administered to 19 learning disabled students at the time of diagnosis and following a period of time in special program placements, and the suggested group pattern for learning disabled children based on the Bannatyne categories was confirmed on both occasions. Expand
Analysis of Cognitive Abilities for Mentally Retarded Children on the WISC-R
This study investigated the cognitive abilities of 238 retarded children and youth on the WISC-R. The sample consisted of 238 children (135 boys and 103 girls) ranging in ages from 5 yr., 7 mo. to 16Expand
Comparability of WISC and WISC-R scores among borderline and mildly retarded children.
All WISC-R and WISC IQ and subtest scores were found to be related significantly, but not directly comparable, and caution was suggested in making direct comparisons of WISC and WIDS scores, at least within the ability range studied. Expand
Intellectual Extremes, Mental Age, and the Nature of Human Intelligence.
Studies comparing the strengths and weaknesses of intellectually retarded and superior groups were reviewed, with particular attention given to studies in which these extreme groups were matched withExpand
