Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to compare and describe test score differences on the Woodcock Psycho-Educational Battery in Spanish (BATERIA) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Revised Mexican version (WISC-RM). Analyses were performed on the two test batteries, investigating mean score differences on the different clusters as a function of type of subject. The sample consisted of 43 fifth grade subjects classified as normals drawn from public and private schools in Mexico City and a sample of 47 subjects classified as referrals drawn from the same classes. The research questions addressed included comparability of performance between normal and referrals on: (a) the full scale scores of the two batteries; (b) the Special Cognitive Ability clusters of the BATERIA; (c) the Scholastic Aptitude clusters of the BATERIA; (d) the Scholastic Achievement clusters of the BATERIA; and (e) the Verbal and Performance scales of the WISC-RM. The most significant finding was that, after controlling for differences in the norms, referral subjects scored about 5.5 standard score points higher on the Full Scale score of the WISC-RM than on the Full Scale score of the BATERIA. In addition, the results indicated that the Full Scale score of the BATERIA correlated better with the three areas of achievement (mathematics, reading, and written language) than did the the Full Scale score of the WISC-RM. Normal subjects scored significantly higher than referrals on the three cognitive ability clusters, the three scholastic aptitude clusters. and the three scholastic achievement clusters of the BATERIA. Referral subjects scored significantly higher on the Performance scale of the WISC-RM than on the Verbal scale, while normal subjects exhibited no difference when comparing the two scales. This study provided insights regarding the impact of the norming procedure on obtained norms, and provides a comparison of performance on the BATERIA and the WISC-RM based on two samples of subjects.
