The Relationship Between Scores on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised and Scores on the Wide Range Achievement Test
Description: The problem with which this study is concerned is establishing the relationship between scores on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) and the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT). The findings indicated a highly significant positive relationship between the WISC-R and WRAT, yielding a a < .001 for all rs between WISC-R Verbal, Performance, and Full Scale IQs and WRAT Reading, Spelling, and-Arithmetic. Analysis of WISC-R and WRAT subtests revealed slightly less significant relationships (a of at least .01) for all possible combinations. Results of this study indicate the possibility of using the WRAT Arithmetic score as a quick estimate of general level of achievement.
