Author information

Kessler Medical Rehabilitation, Research and Education Corporation, and University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, USA.


The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale--Third Edition (WAIS-III; D. Wechsler, 1997) permits the calculation of both traditional IQ and index scores. However, if only the subtests constituting the index scores are administered, especially those yielding the Verbal Comprehension and Perceptual Organization Indexes, there is no equivalent measure of Full Scale IQ. Following the procedure for calculating a General Ability Index (GAI; A. Prifitera, L. G. Weiss, & D. H. Saklofske, 1998) for the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Third Edition (D. Wechsler, 1991), GAI normative tables for the WAIS-III standardization sample are reported here.
