The Digit Span Subtest
of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-III) consists of two tasks of repeating a sequence of numbers in forward span and backward span, especially used in the evaluation of attention.
Correct responses were scored "1," and incorrect responses were scored "0." The results were analyzed with the total scores and subtest
scores that were separately recorded.
and Index score internal consistency reliability coefficients meet or exceed recommended standards for tests used for individual diagnosis and decision-making.
Data analyses were conducted at the item, subtest
, and domain levels.
As an example, several standardized IQ tests (e.g., WISC-IV, WPPSI-HI) include a vocabulary subtest
in which participants are required to label pictures and to provide descriptions of common words.
As it includes tasks which are more relevant to our culture, for example, in Naming subtest
all animals are more common unlike animals used in MoCA.
There were two aims 1) to determine the patterns of test use, specifically the frequency of test and subtest
use, as well as the reasons for test selection and 2) to provide perspectives on the impact and influences of cultural in cognitive and neuropsychological assessments with children.
The participants also performed the vocabulary subtest
of the WAIS-III scale (26) and the identification of common objects task (27).
The maximum scores of this subtest
are 9 [Figure 1]e.

of the KABC-II will yield a scaled score derived from the raw score the examinee obtains which will range from 1-19, have a mean of 10, and a standard deviation of 3.
