Comparability of WAIS and WAIS--R scores among mentally retarded adults



Comparability of WAIS and WAIS--R scores among mentally retarded adults



Psychological Reports 65(1): 292-294



This study compared the performance on the WAIS and WAIS--R of 21 mentally retarded adults residing in an Intermediate Care Facility. Tests were administered in one order, the WAIS initially and the WAIS--R second, with approximately two years between testings. Significant differences were found on the WAIS and WAIS--R for Verbal, Performance and Full Scale IQs. This finding contrasts with the differences between the measures as reported in the WAIS--R manual.
