Assessment: Intelligence Tests
||Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales (SB-5)
||The 2003 publication of the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales, Fifth Edition represents the latest in a series of innovations in the assessment of intelligence and abilities. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, Bulletin I examines the similarities and differences between the different editions of the Stanford-Binet published in the last century. It discusses the development and integration of age-scale and point-scale formats for subtests, the theoretical structure of the test (single versus hierarchical, use of Nonverbal and Verbal domains, and links to the Cattell-Horn-Carroll theory), and changes in item content related to this theoretical structure.
The new edition provides greater differentiation in the measurement of abilities, the precursors of which were present in earlier editions.
