Abstract

KARINO, Camila Akemi; LAROS, Jacob Arie  and  JESUS, Girlene Ribeiro de. Evidences of convergent validity of SON-R 2½-7[a] with WPPSI-III and WISC-III. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.4, pp. 621-629. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722011000400001.

An adequate validation process is fundamental to ensure sound interpretations of test results. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the convergent validity of the SON-R 2½-7[a] with the WPPSI-III and the WISC-III. The test is an abridged edition of the SON-R 2½-7, a Dutch non-verbal intelligence test, with normatization and validation studies done in several European countries. A total of 109 children from three Brazilian states participated in the study. The correlations of the SON-R 2½-7[a] with the WPPSI-III and with the WISC-III were .75 and .69, respectively. The validation coefficients encountered are very similar to the ones found in studies with the SON-R 2½-7 in other countries. The results imply a satisfactory convergent validity of the SON-R 2½-7[a].

Keywords : intelligence tests; validation of psychological instruments; cognitive abilities.
