AbstractThis study investigated the relationship between the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) and the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale: Fourth Edition (SBIV) in a brain-damaged adult sample. The sample in this study was composed of 30 adult patients at two residential treatment programs who completed comprehensive psychological evaluations between August, 1986 and November, 1987. Each patient was administered both the WAIS-R and the SBIV as part of these evaluations. Data gathered in this study was submitted to Pearson product moment correlational statistical procedures. Significant correlations were found in the following pairs of summary scores: the SBIV Test Composite Standard Age Score (SAS) and the WAIS-R Full Scale IQ; the SBIV Abstract/Visual Reasoning Area SAS and the WAIS-R Performance IQ; the SBIV Quantitative Reasoning Area SAS and the WAIS-R Verbal Scale IQ; the SBIV Verbal Reasoning Area SAS and the WAIS-R Verbal Scale IQ; the SBIV Short-Term Memory Area SAS and the WAIS-R Verbal Scale IQ; and the SBIV Short-Term Memory Area SAS and the WAIS-R Full Scale IQ. Significant correlations were also found in the following pairs of individual subtest results: the SBIV and WAIS-R Vocabulary subtests; the SBIV Memory for Digits subtest and the WAIS-R Digit Span subtest; the SBIV Pattern Analysis subtest and the WAIS-R Block Design subtest; and the SBIV Paper Folding and Cutting subtest and the WAIS-R Picture Arrangement subtest. Directions for future research were also suggested upon review of the subtest correlation matrix and the descriptive statistics of data generated.
