Posting IQ test results/Intepretration of them - 04/12/16 12:04 PM

Hello everyone,

Weve noticed an increase in posts on this forum disclosing results of IQ tests, often containing personally identifiable health/psychological information. Some of the IQ (and CogAT, etc.) threads are providing a level of detail that would allow posters and/or their children to be identified, and are approaching or surpassing the boundary of too much being disclosed. Our forum rules state that members must be mindful when providing test scores or other detailed information. We will be forced to delete posts/threads that contain personally identifiable information, so we ask that you please keep this in mind.

If seeking specific medical/psychological advice, we also recommend working with a professional with testing experience who can provide you with specific recommendations meant solely for your child. While members of this forum can provide their opinions, the background information they are receiving is very limited, with no way of knowing the best course of action for a particular student who is being discussed.

Thank you please let me know if you have any questions.
All best,
Mark

Hi, I posted a question asking for help reading my son's WISC-IV scores a couple days ago. I don't see it posted and I assumed either the website ate the post or I just didn't click Submit and clicked away and didn't realize it. Can you tell me if my post was intentionally deleted? I understand if it was-I just would like to know. Thanks! (fwiw my pictures of his results don't have any personal info on them, so anyone I share them with will have no idea of his identity.)

No, there were no pictures or even links, I was just asking someone to help interpret the numbers and I would PM whoever was up for it. I think I just forgot to post it :P

Yanaz - the local expert on this forum is aeh.

If you have detailed test scores, you may wish to contact aeh via the Private Message (PM) feature of the forum.

If you want to ask about the NNAT3, in general, a great way to do that is to start a new discussion thread.

You can also use the Advanced Search feature of the forum, to see if there are other posts over time, which provide the information you are seeking.

Welcome!

The difference in itself is not concerning. It is not unusual for very high cognition learners to have somewhat lower working memory, and in any case, the WMI is normatively quite high (technically in the Very High range), well above average, and bordering on the Extremely High (gifted) range. (Missing it by a mere two points.) Your evaluator's comment is entirely appropriate. I would not worry about it at all.

Your DC's scores are very strong all around. Have you considered applying to DYS? (It looks like the NVI is in the qualifying range.)

If you have other questions about the testing, you might consider posting them in a new thread specific to you.

Thank you so much for the reply Aeh. It makes me relieved. Yes I plan to apply to DYS. DC has Only the scores of NVI working for him although GAI and FSIQ are only one point short. Not sure how it will go but no harm in trying.
You are a treasure of information and I truly appreciate your response to each and every one.
