Development of a Short Form of the Korean Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence
Hye Won Park
For the development of a short form of the Korean Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (K-WPPSI), 360 preschool and primary school children were tested with 4 subtests: Object Assembly, Arithmetic, Block Design, and Comprehension. Transformed scores were derived according to K-WPPSI norms. Interscorer reliability coefficients measured by two independent scorers with the data of 16 children were satisfactory: Comprehension, .92; Arithmetic, .94; Block Design, .97; Object Assembly, .97 Cronbach alpha reliability coefficient for the 4 subtests were very similar to those for the original K-WPPSI, ranging between .71 and .92. Factor analyses revealed 2 factors corresponding to Wechsler`s 2 factor theory of intelligence. Discriminant validity was obtained with a Picture-Vocabulary test. Boys performed slightly better than girls on all subtests except for Comprehension. Boys significantly out-performed girls in Arithmetic.
