Category - Assessment

It would be appropriate for a clinical psychologist to measure the intelligence of a slow learning child of no older than what age with either the WPSSI or the WISC-IV?
  1. Age 5
  2. Age 6
  3. Age 7
  4. None of the above
Explanation
Answer: C - The WISC-IV is primarily intended for children age 6-16, while the WPSSI is designed for younger children, age 3-7. The overlap indicates that 7-year-olds could be given either measure, with the WPPSI being especially appropriate for a child of below average intellectual functioning, for whom most of the WISC-IV questions might be too difficult.
