Examined the validity of 2- and 4-subtest short forms of the WAIS--R proposed by A. B. Silverstein (see record 1982-24731-001) in 60 male Ss (mean age 50.3 yrs) referred for neuropsychological examination. Results yield estimates that were highly correlated with, but significantly greater than, the Full Scale IQ. Since short-form estimates frequently differed from the actual Full Scale IQ in terms of the manual intelligence classification, it is suggested that they provide positively biased estimates of general intelligence for some clinical populations.
