W. M. Reynolds (see record 1979-25128-001) criticized the present authors because of their use of improper statistics in supporting the validity of the WAIS Verbal IQ as a short form of the Full Scale IQ. The authors agree with Reynolds that they erred in the choice of one statistical test. However, it is maintained that from a practical standpoint, the use of the Verbal IQ as a short form had considerable value as a screening device and should not be discarded because of this one criticism.
