WISC–V: Equivalence of Q-interactive® and Paper Administrations of Cognitive Tasks

Beschreibung

This is the eighth Q-interactive equivalence study. In this study, the equivalence of scores from digitally assisted and standard administrations of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children®–fifth edition (WISC®–V; Wechsler, 2014) was evaluated.

With Q-interactive, the examiner and examinee use wireless tablets that are synched with each other, enabling the examiner to read administration instructions, time and capture response information (including audio recording), and view and control the examinee’s tablet. The examinee tablet displays visual stimuli and captures touch responses. In the initial phase of adapting tests to the Q-interactive platform, the goal has been to maintain raw score equivalence between standard (paper) and digital administration, and scoring formats. If equivalence is demonstrated, then the norms, reliability, and validity information gathered for the paper format can be applied to Q-interactive results. This is the eighth Q-interactive equivalence study. In this study, the equivalence of scores from digitally assisted and standard administrations of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children®–fifth edition (WISC®–V; Wechsler, 2014) was evaluated.
