Factor analysis of the WAIS and Wechsler Memory Scale: an analysis of the construct validity of the Wechsler Memory Scale


, : Factor analysis of the WAIS and Wechsler Memory Scale: an analysis of the construct validity of the Wechsler Memory Scale. Journal of Clinical Neuropsychology 5(2): 159-168

The WAIS and Wechsler Memory Scale subtest scores of 256 neurologic and nonneurologic subjects were factor analyzed. The results supported the construct validity of the Wechsler Memory Scale as a measure of verbal learning and memory, attention and concentration, and orientation. Construct validity was not demonstrated for the Visual Reproduction subtest as a measure of visual memory. Suggestions are offered for future development and research on measures of visual memory.

The role solvent plays in reactions involving frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs)-for example, the stoichiometric mixture of a bulky Lewis acid and a bulky Lewis base-still remains largely unexplored at the molecular level. For a reaction of the phospho...
