Three of the WPPSI-III indices were retained: Full Scale IQ (FSIQ), Verbal IQ
(VIQ), and Performance IQ (PIQ).
The means and standard deviations of these four groups on verbal IQ
were Very Low Growth (M = 100.
Therefore, in the first phase of the experiment, after the general orientation, we found it important for the subjects to fill out two short tests, which were to measure the participants' verbal IQ
and level of empathy.
In terms of IQ scores, a general language impairment will manifest itself in performance on verbal IQ
175 -- Note: 3-DHM = three dimensional haptic matrices adjusted scores, V-IQ = WAIS-III Verbal IQ
, CTB-P = performance index (P-IQ) of the Cognitive Test for the Blind, VA = best-corrected visual acuity, and [AO.
The main assumption was that dropout delinquent adolescents living in residential institutions would have a lower score on Total IQ, broad discrepancy between Performance IQ and Verbal IQ
, and a lower level of the FD factor as compared with dropout delinquent adolescents living at home and nondelinquent adolescents living at home (the control group).
Volunteers were also tested on a range of verbal IQ
, working memory and vigilance tasks.
Two important findings emerged: (a) hierarchical regression analyses found that a dynamic assessment measure factor score contributed unique variance to predicting reading and mathematics, beyond what is attributed to verbal IQ
and initial scores related to WM; and (b) poor readers and skilled readers were more likely to change and maintain their WM score gained under the dynamic testing conditions than children with reading disabilities or children with a combination of math/reading disabilities.
According to Rourke and Conway, whereas the R-S group exhibited a pattern of verbal IQ
that is less than performance IQ, group A children exhibited the opposite pattern (that is, performance IQ less than verbal IQ
But the same man touted for his intelligence - his verbal IQ
is in the "superior" range - naively bought into a lie: that image is everything.
Thomas and colleagues (1998) compared 15 FAS/FAE children with 15 normal control subjects and 15 control children matched for verbal IQ
Even those who employ their word smarts constantly, such as writers and news commentators, rarely draw on more than 50% of their verbal IQ
