The Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT ; Kaufman & Kaufman, 1990) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Third Edition (WISC-III ; Wechsler, 1991) are compared in 35 economically disadvantaged African American youth presenting for treatment in a community mental health setting.
Significant correlations were found between K-BIT Composite and WISC-III Full Scale IQ scores.
Results revealed significant differences between K-BIT and WISC-III scores ; K-BIT Composite and Matrices mean scores were found to be 6 and 11 points higher than respective WISC-III Full Scale IQ and Performance IQ mean scores.
No significant differences were obtained between K-BIT Vocabulary and WISC-III Verbal IQ scores.
Our findings support the authors'recommendations for use of the Matrices subtest alone with African American youth from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
