Not only has intelligence been an elusive construct, but methods for measuring it continue to be hotly debated in present day. A multitude of theories currently exist that attempt to objectively explain the mechanisms of intelligence, but the fact remains that any discussion regarding intelligence is theoretical in nature. In an attempt to understand the concept of general intelligence, numerous psychologists and researchers have attempted to quantitatively define this intangible paradigm through various forms of assessment. Accurate test interpretation centers around how well a test measures the construct it contends to measure. The Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities (WJ IV COG) and Tests of Oral Language (WJ IV OL) are two testing batteries in the Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJ IV) that purportedly measure general intelligence as well as seven broad cognitive factors. The publishers of the WJ IV denote that this most recent iteration of the test is based on modern Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) theory as well as advances in neuropsychological research. Of concern, the WJ IV Technical Manual is exceedingly complex and the results from the presented studies supporting the factor structure of the WJ IV are profoundly obscured for the general practitioner. The primary purpose of this study is to provide an objective analysis of the WJ IV COG and WJ IV OL for the 14- to 19- year old age group to determine the factor structure of the assessment battery. Data analyses included an exploratory factor analysis utilizing the correlation matrix provided in the technical manual by the test publishers. Results from this study indicate the WJ IV COG and WJ IV OL measure five broad CHC factors in the identified age range: comprehension knowledge (Gc), short-term working memory (Gwm), auditory processing (Ga), processing speed (Gs), and a final factor that incorporates fluid reasoning (Gf), long-term storage and retrieval (Glr), and visual processing (Gv) together.

Reading and intelligence tests are commonly used as instruments to decide on special educational services for students. The construct validity and predictive validity of the Woodcock Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities (WJ IV; Schrank, McGrew, & Mather,2014) has not been examined for bias across racial/ethnic groups. This study extends Keith's (199) examination of bias for general and specific cognitive ability latent variables predicting basic reading skills, reading comprehension, and reading rate using a cognitive model and a reading achievment model adapted from Niileksela, Reynolds, Keith, and McGrew (2016). Using Black, Hispanic, and White samples of 9- to 13-year-olds from the WJ IV norming sample, the cognitive model demonstrated minimal evidence of variance across groups at the metric level, and the reading achievment model was invariant across groups. Multisample structural equation modeling resulted in no significant differences across racial groups. Gc and Gs were consistent predictors for all reading factors. All predictive models for this study demonstrated a poor fit. Overall, no predictive bias was found in the distribution of underlying latent variables that produce reading skills and inherent differences across racial/ethnic groups are not supported.

Establishing Cognitive Predictor Thresholds for Proficiency in Reading and Mathematics: Analysis of the Woodcock-Johnson IV Developmental-Age Norming Sample

Assessment of specific learning disabilities (SLD) in educational settings is one important function of a school psychologist. The federal definition of SLD describes "underlying cognitive processing deficits" as part of the assessment criteria, that is also incorporated into several states' SLD eligibility criteria, that is difficult to directly evaluate using traditional assessment methods. Traditionally, use of norm-referenced scores have been used to compare an examinee's relative performance on assessment tests. Such a method does not provide direct evidence of underlying cognitive processing deficits associated with poor academic achievement. In an effort to directly inform this cognitive processing ability and academic proficiency relation, the current study utilized measures of absolute level of performance—W scores from cognitive (COG) and achievement (ACH) tests from the Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJ IV)—to search for optimal cognitive predictors of proficiency in reading and mathematics domains. The study included two phases. The first phase consisted of determining proficiency standards for WJ IV ACH tests related to reading and mathematics SLD eligibility areas through expert review of test item content to establish cut scores for proficient performance. The second phase employed theoretically relevant WJ IV COG tests as predictor variables in multiple receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analyses for proficiency classification purposes for the reading and mathematics SLD eligibility area clusters and their contributing WJ IV ACH tests. Results indicate that the WJ IV COG tests are generally good to excellent predictors of academic proficiency, when considering absolute levels of performance. Oral Vocabulary, a measure of Comprehension-Knowledge (Gc), and Number Series, a measure of Fluid Reasoning (Gf), demonstrated the greatest diagnostic accuracy for classification of proficiency in reading and mathematics. Groundwork has been laid for establishing cognitive predictors that accurately predict proficiency in reading and mathematics that can strengthen the case that an examinee meets the underlying criteria for an SLD(i.e., a related cognitive processing deficit).

"In Neuropsychological Practice with Veterans, Bush endeavors to compile a comprehensive account of how neuropsychological research, assessment, and treatment of veterans are impacted by military status. He succeeds brilliantly with this undertaking...[T]his is an essential text for those working with active duty service members and veterans, and is highly recommended to all those seeking new perspectives."--Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society "In Neuropsychological Practice with Veterans, Dr. Shane S. Bush provides a multifaceted overview of neuropsychological assessments and treatments associated with war veterans who have suffered from traumatic brain injury (TBI) during their service."--Somatic Psychotherapy Today Traumatic brain injury (TBI), afflicting approximately one third of injured veterans returning from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, is considered the signature injury in these conflicts. In addition to TBI, symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depression often afflict these veterans and contribute to neurological symptoms. This is the first volume to provide a comprehensive overview of neuropsychologically grounded assessment, treatment, training, and trends for clinicians who work with this population. Encompassing the writings of clinicians and researchers experienced in working with the Veterans Administration (VA) population, the book is grounded in an understanding of the unique culture of the veteran with its specialized service delivery methods and procedures. In addition to its focus on veterans with TBI, the text also addresses the assessment and treatment of aging veterans of previous military conflicts and of combat and non-combat veterans with neurological and emotional problems related to aging, substance abuse, HIV/hepatitis, psychiatric disorders, and other problems. Key Features: Addresses the growing need for neuropsychological assessment and treatment of returning veterans as well as aging veterans of earlier conflicts Focuses on traumatic brain injury, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression Discusses assessment of malingering (faking); benefits, pension, return-to-work evaluations; polytrauma management; and training concerns Written by clinicians and researchers experienced in working with veterans Edited by a neuropsychology specialist who is well known in the VA community
