The book discusses the changes made between 3rd and 4th editions along with an FAQ and answers about use and interpretation. The reader is instructed how to interpret composite scores, and everything needed to use and interpret two entirely new composite scores: the General Ability Index (GAI), and the Cognitive Proficiency Index (CPI). This information does NOT appear in the manual accompanying the test.
The second section of the book focuses on WAIS-IV use and interpretation with special clinical applications and populations, including with multicultural clients, in neuropsychological settings, with individuals experiencing psychological disorders, and with older adults. The editors and chapter authors have exclusive access to proprietary WAIS-IV data to run advanced analyses and provide information beyond what is offered in the WAIS-IV manual.
- Provides practical advice on scoring and administration
- Facilitates understanding WAIS-IV use with special populations
- Describes use of the WAIS-IV with WMS-II
