Jane’s general cognitive ability is within the Very Superior range of intellectual functioning. The Verbal Comprehension Index is designed to measure verbal reasoning and concept formation. Jane’s performance on the verbal subtests contributing to the VCI is somewhat variable although it is not especially unusual.4% Scaled Scaled Subtest/Process Score Score 1 Score 2 Digit Span Forward . Jane’s nonverbal reasoning abilities as measured by the Perceptual Reasoning Index are in the Very Superior range and above those of approximately 99% of her peers (PRI = 135.00 2. Her overall thinking and reasoning abilities exceed those of approximately 98% of children her age (FSIQ = 130.2% Interpretation of WISC-IV Results Jane was administered fifteen subtests of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fourth Edition (WISCIV) from which her composite scores are derived.

Jane's ability to exert mental control is still within the High Average range and better than that of approximately 86% of her age-mates (Working Memory Index = 116.

Jane was presented with two or three rows of easily identifiable pictures and asked to choose one picture from each row to form a group with a common characteristic. than on Coding (Scaled Score = 10). Although clearly weaker than her nonverbal reasoning abilities. which is more demanding of attention to detail and mental control. the PSI score should be interpreted with caution.

She performed better than approximately 86% of her age-mates in this area (Working Memory Index = 116. visual-motor coordination. Good speed of simple information processing may free cognitive resources for the processing of more complex information. The task invokes verbal concepts. Jane’s performance on the subtests that comprise the PSI is quite variable. Processing visual material quickly is an ability that Jane performs less well than her nonverbal reasoning ability. and ease new learning. This subtest is designed to measure fluid reasoning and abstract categorical reasoning ability. although the magnitude of this difference in performance is not unusual among children her age. and learning.

Much better than the performance of most of her age-mates. A relative weakness in mental control may make the processing of complex information more time-consuming for Jane. Students with superior reasoning ability often tend to perform less well. Personal Strengths and Weakness Jane's performance was significantly better on the Picture Concepts subtest than her own mean score. Her performance across these areas differs significantly and suggests that these are the areas of most pronounced strength and weakness. Although less well developed than her other . and exert mental control are a weakness relative to her nonverbal reasoning abilities. Processing speed is an indication of the rapidity with which Jane can mentally process simple or routine information without making errors. 95% confidence interval 102-120).

Jane's general verbal comprehension abilities were in the Superior range (VCI = 126). _______________________ Michelle C. it is recommended that the student participates in an advanced/gifted placement program. On the Similarities subtest Jane was required to respond orally to a series of word pairs by explaining how the words of each pair are alike. (Comprehension scaled score = 13). She was referred by her mother due to possible gifted program placement. this subtest assesses her comprehension of social situations and social judgment as well as her knowledge of conventional standards of social behavior. Her general cognitive ability. and general perceptual reasoning abilities were in the Very Superior range (PRI = 135). The Comprehension subtest required Jane to provide oral solutions to everyday problems and to explain the underlying reasons for certain social rules or concepts. This subtest examines her ability to abstract meaningful concepts and relationships from verbally presented material. Recommendations Based on scores obtained in this assessment which included the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-IV Edition. as estimated by the WISC-IV. (Similarities scaled score = 17). This subtest provides a general measure of verbal reasoning.Psychoeducational Solutions of Tampa Bay “Helping children achieve their full potential through early detection.
