Abstract

This report consists of two parts. The first is a description of an internship completed in the Diagnostic and Remedial Unit at Memorial University. The second part describes the project which was completed as the research component of the internship. The description of the internship consists of the rationale, a description of the setting, the activities which were performed during the internship to meet nine goals set by the intern and concluding evaluative remarks. The research project, its rationale, description, and limitations are provided in the second part of the report. The project consists of the development of two aids for the analysis of the Wechsler Intelligence Test for Children-Revised (WISC-R). A WISC-R Test Analysis worksheet was designed to guide examiners through an individualized WISC-R analysis and record pertinent data for an individualized test interpretation. A computer program for the Texas Instrument TI-99 4A was also developed to accompany the WISC-R Test Analysis Worksheet and aid in the analysis. The primary method of analysis is based on the WISC-R analysis method of Alan Kaufman.
