Abstract:

Alan S. Kaufman has been on the cutting edge of intelligence testing for more than twenty-five years. Not least among his many important contributions to the field during that time has been his groundbreaking Intelligent Testing with the WISC-R, the book that taught an entire generation of psychologists and educators internationally how to interpret and make intelligent use of Wechsler's intelligence scales. Now from the man whose name has become synonymous worldwide with the intelligent use of intelligence testing, here is the definitive guide to Intelligent Testing with the WISC-III. Revised and updated to reflect not only crucial changes to the WISC-R, but also the latest research findings on intelligence testing and its real-world applications, this book provides examiners with a rational, step-by-step approach to organizing and making sense of the barrage of numbers derived from the WISC-III's many subtests and factor indexes. Key features include a new, seven-step interpretive approach; in-depth coverage of the new Processing Speed factor, the modified Freedom from Distractibility factor, and the new Symbol Search subtest; ten new case reports that illustrate the approach explicated in the book; detailed guidance on translating test scores into specific clinical and educational intervention strategies; a new statistical technique for interpreting relative strengths and weaknesses on separate subtests; integrating profiles of scores on the WISC-III with those yielded by seven other major multiscore batteries: Das-Naglieri, DAS, Detroit-3, K-ABC, Stanford-Binet, KAIT, and Woodcock-Johnson-Revised; in-depth examinations of relevant applications of Horn-Catell fluid-crystallized and Horn-revised theories of intelligence; and complete numerical charts, tables, and other statistical aids. The definitive guide to interpreting the most widely used child intelligence test in the world, Intelligent Testing with the WISC-III is an indispensable tool for clinical child psychologists, educational and school psychologists, developmental psychologists, and all specialists who work with children.
