Abstract

The current study evaluated the applicability of the Australian adaptations of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - Third Edition and the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale - Fourth Edition for a Dunedin sample of children. Previous research with earlier versions of the measures suggested that New Zealanders obtain scores at or above those of the U.S. normative sample. Ninety children participated, 60 between ages 5 to 8 receiving the SB-FE and 60 between ages 7 to 10 receiving the WISC-III (thus, 7- and 8-year-olds received both tests). Contrary to previous research, the current Dunedin sample obtained means comparable to the American norms. Limitations due to sample characteristics and sample size are discussed.
