Digit span forward and backward separate and unequal components of the wechsler adult intelligence scale digit span



Digit span forward and backward separate and unequal components of the wechsler adult intelligence scale digit span



Perceptual & Motor Skills 56(1): 335-338



WAIS [Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale] digit span scores of 50 subjects were evaluated to determine the relationship of digits forward and digits backward to intellectual functioning in an intellectually subnormal population. The subjects fell into one of 5 levels of intelligence (50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89, and 90-99) based upon full sclae WAIS IQ. WAIS IQ and digits backward are significantly more highly correlated to all 3 WAIS IQ than are digits forward. Only the WAIS digit span (combined forward and backward) and digits backward discriminated across the 5 levels of intelligence.
