Assessing adolescent and adult intelligence by Alan S Kaufman( Book )

26 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and German and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Assessing Adolescent and Adult Intelligence, the classic text from Alan Kaufman and Elizabeth Lichtenberger has consistently provided the most comprehensive source of information on cognitive assessment of adults and adolescents. The newly updated Third Edition provides important enhancements and additions that highlight the latest research and interpretive methods for the WAIS-III." "Augmenting the traditional "sequential" and "simultaneous" WAIS-III interpretive methods, the authors present a new approach derived from Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) theory. This approach combines normative assessment (performance relative to age peers) with ipsative assessment (performance relative to the person's own mean level). Following Flanagan and Kaufman's work to develop a similar CHC approach for the WISC-IV, Kaufman and Lichtenberger have applied this system to the WAIS-III profile of scores along with integrating recent WAIS-III literature." "Assessing Adolescent and Adult Intelligence remains the premier resource for the field, covering not only the WAIS-III but also the WJ-III, the KAIT, and several brief measures of intelligence, as well as laying out a relevant, up-to-date discussion of the discipline. The new, theory-based interpretive approach for the WAIS-III makes this a vital resource for practicing psychologists, as well as a comprehensive text for graduate students."--Jacket

11 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alan S. Kaufman has been on the cutting edge of intelligence testing for more than twenty-five years. Not least among his many important contributions to the field during that time has been his groundbreaking Intelligent Testing with the WISC-R, the book that taught an entire generation of psychologists and educators internationally how to interpret and make intelligent use of Wechsler's intelligence scales. Now from the man whose name has become synonymous worldwide with the intelligent use of intelligence testing, here is the definitive guide to Intelligent Testing with the WISC-III. Revised and updated to reflect not only crucial changes to the WISC-R, but also the latest research findings on intelligence testing and its real-world applications, this book provides examiners with a rational, step-by-step approach to organizing and making sense of the barrage of numbers derived from the WISC-III's many subtests and factor indexes. Key features include a new, seven-step interpretive approach; in-depth coverage of the new Processing Speed factor, the modified Freedom from Distractibility factor, and the new Symbol Search subtest; ten new case reports that illustrate the approach explicated in the book; detailed guidance on translating test scores into specific clinical and educational intervention strategies; a new statistical technique for interpreting relative strengths and weaknesses on separate subtests; integrating profiles of scores on the WISC-III with those yielded by seven other major multiscore batteries: Das-Naglieri, DAS, Detroit-3, K-ABC, Stanford-Binet, KAIT, and Woodcock-Johnson-Revised; in-depth examinations of relevant applications of Horn-Catell fluid-crystallized and Horn-revised theories of intelligence; and complete numerical charts, tables, and other statistical aids. The definitive guide to interpreting the most widely used child intelligence test in the world, Intelligent Testing with the WISC-III is an indispensable tool for clinical child psychologists, educational and school psychologists, developmental psychologists, and all specialists who work with children

Clinical evaluation of young children with the McCarthy scales by Alan S Kaufman( Book )

13 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main goal of this book is to enable examiners to use the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities as a clinical tool for evaluating preschool and primary-grade children. However, before an examiner becomes too concerned with issues relating to test interpretation, he or she should first understand thoroughly certain basic considerations. Practical issues pertaining to the McCarthy, such as its advantages and disadvantages and tips for administration, are therefore treated in Part I; interpretation of the profile and integration of the McCarthy with other tests are treated in Parts ii and iii. The chapters in the book are: (1) The McCarthy's Role in Assessing Young Children; Administration and Scoring of the 18 Tests: Special Considerations and Helpful Hints; (3) Computing Prorated Indices When a Test is Spoiled or Not Given; (4) The Six Scales and What They Measure; (5) Interpreting the General Cognitive Index and the Scale Index Profile; (6) Interpreting Specific Areas of Strength and Weakness; (7) Interpreting the McCarthy Qualitatively; (8) Using the McCarthy as Part of a Larger Test Battery; and (9) Illustrative Case Reports of nine children. The Scales' usefulness in testing young children, learning disabled children, and minority groups are also discussed. (Author/CTM)

IQ testing 101 by Alan S Kaufman( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the use of intelligence tests is widespread, they are not without controversy. IQ supporters see IQ measures as valid predictors of academic success, capable of proving real differences in intellectual abilities and influencing educational policy. IQ critics such as Robert Sternberg and Howard Gardner believe that IQ is a limited measure of intelligence and that a truer picture should incorporate more cultural and contextual factors. Alan Kaufman, a fellow of four divisions of the American Psychological Association, is a centrist in this debate. As a protege of David Wechsler, Kaufman is
Specific learning disabilities and difficulties in children and adolescents : psychological assessment and evaluation by Alan S Kaufman( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The assessment of specific learning disabilities and disorders (SLD) has long been controversial. Definitions, diagnosis and treatments have been vigorously debated for decades, with the use of IQ tests attracting particular controversy. However, in recent times there have been many other new assessment tools devised for measuring intelligence and neuropsychological functioning, extending well beyond the scope of Wechsler's scales. In this cutting-edge survey, an international team of leaders in the field examines the available methods. Many of the contributors are themselves the developers of the most recent assessment tests. The authors of each chapter evaluate the diversity of clinical applications of these new instruments in SLD, and their important implications for educational intervention. The historical context and the underlying neuropsychological and cognitive theory are also expertly examined. This book will be essential reading for any practitioner or trainee dealing with specific learning issues in young people
