Assessing Adolescent and Adult Intelligence PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Assessing Adolescent and Adult Intelligence free pdf Assessing Adolescent and Adult Intelligence, Third Edition features comprehensive coverage of clinical and neuropsychological assesment, focusing on the WAIS -III, but also covering the WJ III TM , the KAIT, and several brief measures of intelligence. The 2005 release of this popular text now has an alternative interpretive system for the WAIS -III that integrates normative assessment (performance relative to age peers) with ipsative assessment (performance relative to the person's own mean level), which draws heavily on Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) Theory. Three new appendices include the alternate interpretive system, which is intended to supplement the interpretive approach already covered in the book- a blank interpretive worksheet to permit examiners to conduct all of the calculations and decision-making that is necessary to apply the seven steps of this new system to the WAIS -III profiles of the people they test- and norms tables for new combinations of WAIS -III subtests that are incorporated into the new interpretive system.
