Abstract

Two indexes of scatter (range and mean deviation) were measured from the protocols of 86 WISC-R's and 670 WISC’s drawn from the files of a psychological clinic. Scatter scores were significantly different compared to Kaufman's normative data (1976), but substantial overlap still existed between distributions. Scatter indexes were nonsignificantly related to sex; whereas they were modestly correlated with Full Scale IQ and age. The different indexes themselves were significantly intercorrelated and judged equivalent. GPA scores for a subsample (n = 42) of the WISC group were uncorrelated with the scatter indexes. The practical and theoretical implications for using scatter indexes as diagnostic tools or indicators of future functioning were discussed.
