The WASI meets the demand for a reliable, brief measure of intellectual ability in clinical, educational and research settings for ages 6 to 89 years. With parallel forms of WAIS-IIIUK and WISC-IIIUK subtests, it offers the clinician a means of reducing practice effects on repeat testing. It yields traditional verbal, performance and full scale IQ scores and is linked to the WISC-IIIUK and WAIS-IIIUK. The WASI allows you to choose whether to use the four or two subtest format.

CONTRASTS

In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.

INDICATORS

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).

REVISION 1

Definition contributed by NNichols about eight years ago:The WASI meets the demand for a reliable, brief measure of intellectual ability in clinical, educational and research settings for ages 6 to 89 years. With parallel forms of WAIS-IIIUK and WISC-IIIUK subtests, it offers the clinician a means of reducing practice effects on repeat testing. The WASI provides you with more information than is typically available from other brief intelligence tests. This efficient assessment yields traditional verbal, performance and full scale IQ scores and is linked to the WISC-IIIUK and WAIS-IIIUK. This linkage allows you to estimate a range of full-scale IQ scores on the comprehensive batteries and increases the WASI's clinical utility. While the WASI is not intended to replace detailed assessment using the WISC-IIIUK and WAIS-IIIUK, it is the perfect instrument for quickly measuring an individual's general level of cognitive functioning. The WASI is unique because it allows you to choose whether to use the four or two subtest format. This flexibility provides you with control over administration time and depth of assessment.
