This scale is an individually administered clinical instrument aimed at assessing the general intellectual ability of children aged 6 through 16 years 11 months. It may be used for the purposes of psychoeducational assessment, diagnosing giftedness and mental retardation, clinical, and neurological assessment. Being the third version of the WISC, the instrument boasts a substantial body of research addressing its psychometric features (Braden, 1995). In addition, different subtests of the scale focus on particular areas such as attention and speed of information processing, and verbal functions. Other tests of cognitive and intellectual function, suggested by Harris (1995), that could be utilised with a primary-school-aged child are the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Revised (WPPSI-R) (The Psychological Corporation), Stanford-Binet (4th edition) (Riverside Publishing Company), Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) (American Guidance Service), and the Hiskey-Nebraska Test of Learning Aptitude.
