Letter number sequencing

Presented to Ms. Omama Tariq Presented By Madiha Yasin Roll no. 34 M.SC III (M)

• Untimed test .Letter number sequencing • Letter number sequencing a supplemental working memory subtest. A series of orally presented letters and numbers that are presented in a mixed-up order. The examinee must reorder and repeat the list by saying the numbers first in ascending order and then the letters in alphabetical order.

Supplementary test .

Test items E.5-P-3-Y-9 .G 1.K-2-C-7-S 3.T-9-A-3 2.F-7-L 2.8-D-6-G-1 2.7-N-4-L 1.V-1-J-5 3.H-I-8 1.R-4D 3.

purpose It measure • Auditory short term memory • Sequencing ability • Concentration and attention • Mental flexibility • Speed of mental processing Age range= 16 to 69 years .

introduced in WAIS III .origin • Developed by James Gold and his Colleagues • Firstly.

Two demonstration and two sample items added. sample item b has two trial and the test item have three trials. with all new number letter combinations. – Sample item have one trial. – Maximum score = 21 • WAIS IV – Contain 10 instead of 7 items.items • WAIS III – 7 set of items each consist of three trials. – Maximum score = 30 .

.Administration  Read the items orally. Read the digits and letters singly and distinctly. at the rate of one number or letter per second.

• Even if the individual fails the sample items. continue with the subtest. DISCONTINUE CONSIDERATIONS • Discontinue the subtest when the individual obtains scores of 0 on all three trials of an item. followed by sample item and then item 1.Administration STARTING CONSIDERATIONS • Test begin with item 1 • All individuals ages 16 to 69 years start with demonstration item. .

regardless of whether the letters or numbers are stated first. • Give 0 point if the if he does not give the response with in approximately 30 seconds. . give 1 point when the individual correctly re-sequences the letters and numbers. • For each test items.scoring • Do not count the sample items in the final score. 2. • All trials are scored 0. 1. 3.

• Preservation error: repeating one or more numbers or letters.Types of errors • Omission errors: leaving one number or letter out of the correct sequence. . • Auditory discrimination errors: saying the letter D or the digit 3 instead of T. • Sequential errors: giving the correct number and letters but in the wrong sequence. • Sequence reversal errors: giving the correct numbers and letters but reversing two or more of them. • Commission errors: adding one or more numbers or letters to the correct sequence.

Interpretation • High scores on letter number sequencing indicate – Good auditory sequential processing – Effectively auditory short term memory – Good attention and concentration – Good encoding ability – Good rehearsal strategies – Good ability to self monitor .

• Low score indicate – Poor short term auditory memory – Poor auditory sequential processing – Poor attention and concentration – Poor encoding ability – Poor rehearsal strategies – Poor ability to self monitor .

SCORING GUIDELINES ACCORDING TO WISC 4 • For each trial. score 1 point if the child recalls all the numbers and letters in their correct sequence. Record a P on the record form for any prompt given. do not award credit. 4. • If standardized prompts are given on specific trials of item 1. even if the child recalls the letter before the numbers. . Score 0 point for incorrect items. or 5 and the child subsequently corrects his or her previous answer.

. in order. • Item 4 (trial 2): remember to say the letters in order • Item 5 (trial): remember to say the numbers in order. Let’s try another one.• The WISC-IV administration and scoring manual marks with an asterisk those trials that should be prompted. Than say the letters in alphabetical order. • The following prompts should be used: • Item 1 (trial 1): remember to say the numbers first. • A maximum of 30 raw scores points may be obtained.
