What does the FSIQ tell you?
Speed of learning; learning potential; global cognitive skills
What you've learned so far
Achievement
Speed of what you're learning/ potential
IQ
"Very Superior"; 98th %; Gifted; Learning 98% faster than kids their own age
130+
Achievement below IQ
Learning Disabled
Achievement above IQ
Over achiever
"Superior Range"; Very bright, risk of being under stimulated in the class room; IQ in doctoral program; 91-98th %
120-129
High/ Above Avg; Can keep up with mainstream classroom/ adv work; fine in college/ grad program; 75-91%
110-119
Average; mainstream kids; fine in college; 25-75%
90-109
Low Average; Can keep pace in class, but may struggle with grades; left in mainstream classroom, unless LD; struggle in college; 9-25%
80-89
Borderline; not good in mainstream class; usually get put into ESE program;gradually fall more and more behind; don't go onto college; 2-9%
70-79
Mildly impaired; Mental Retardation; deficit in maturity; tend to top out at 6th grade level; special classes; obtain jobs after HS (very concrete/ not many skills); live in group home
60-69
Moderately Impaired; <1%; require special edu; classes teach functional skills; after HS --> shelter workshop program; don't usually live alone
50-59
What IQ range can the WISC assess?
40-160
What IQ range is the WISC good for?
70-130
Mild MR
55-70
Mod MR
40-55
Severe MR
25-40
Profound MR
below 25
Index Measures:
Verbal reasoning skills; how well you learn info presented to you verbally and how well you verball communicate with others; crystalized intelligence
VCI
What is the best indicator of how well you learn with info presented to you verbally/ how well you communicate with others verbally?
VCI
acquired knowledge used over time (rehearsed and overlearned)
Crystalized Intell.
Ability to perform well in novel situations; use new info for prob. solving
Fluid Intell.
What is the best indicator of crystalized intell. on WISC?
VCI
What type of intell. is the least impacted by head trauma?
crystalized intell.
What index probably gives you the best indicator or reading/writing?
VCI
Tells you:
How well of a non-verbal learner you are; most likely have a deficit in math; indicator or non-abstract verbal reasoning
PRI
Tells you:
How long you can hold info in head; attention and concentration skills
WMI
Shortest form of memory; hold info for a couple of seconds
Attention
Rate of mental processing speed; how quickly you can perform a task while maintaining accuracy
PSI
What is PSI most likely to be negatively impacted by?
Poor motivation; lack of attention; fatigue during testing; anxiety
What would indicate a child had fatigued during testing?
Better coding score than Symbol Search
What would indicate a child had anxiety during testing?
Symbol Search better than coding
If PSI is sig. lower than FSIQ, what factors should you rule out?
Poor motivation, methodical nature, fatigue/depression
If WMI is sig. lower than FSIQ what factors should you rule out?
Hearing problems, rapidly progressing neurological condidition (head trauma), test anxiety
If PRI is sig. lower than FSIQ
Visual problems; motor deficits
VCI > PRI
better at learning verbally
VCI < PRI
non verbal learner/visual; hands on
VCI > WMI
auditory, attention, concentration problem
VCI < WMI
auditory, attention, concentration stronger than reasoning skills
VCI vs. PS
verbal vs. speed
PRI vs. WMI
non verbal reasoning vs. attention skills
asesses overall work power; good indicator of verbal learning; predicts premorbid IQ;; strong language skills; extensive edu
Vocab
what's the most predictive subtest on how you'll perform on WISC?
vocab
Most reliable test, most resistant brain damage, best indicator of crystalized intelligence
vocab
If vocab is a weakness, what should you rule out?
ESL, Education deprivation, temporal lobe damage
abstract verbal reasoning skills; concrete --> abstract
Similarities
Of all VCI subtests, which one is most reduced by brain images?
similarities
Social/common sense judgement; understanding of US culture
comprehension
fundalmental knowledge; how much you've learned
Information
If PRI is sig. lower than FSIQ
Visual problems; motor deficits
VCI > PRI
better at learning verbally
VCI < PRI
non verbal learner/visual; hands on

auditory, attention, concentration problem
VCI < WMI
auditory, attention, concentration stronger than reasoning skills

comprehension
fundalmental knowledge; how much you've learned
Information
Abstract Verbal Reasoning Skills; catagorization skills; resistant to brain injury
Word Reasoning
visio-spatial abilities; hand eye coordination
Block Design
best indicatior of FISQ for PRI
Block Design
non verbal catagorization skills; requires little motor skills
Picture concepts
