Available scores assess the examinee’s overall performance, as well as the individual skills measured within and across the three tasks. Faces The Faces subtest measures immediate and delayed recall of faces. Early learning trials require facial discrimination and recognition as well as spatial memory. The examinee is shown a grid with photographs of various faces in some of the cells for 10 seconds. Following WAIS-IV, WMS-IV, AND ACS WMSÀIV FLEXIBLE APPROACH 57 removal of the stimulus, the examinee selects faces from a set of cards and places the cards in the grid from memory.

The DCI provides a robust measure of memory for visual detail and is particularly helpful in comparisons with other aspects of visual memory. Index Contrast Scores The WMSÀIV provides contrast scores for most subtests with immediate and delayed conditions or recall and recognition tasks. Additionally, several index level contrast scaled scores are provided. , recall vs. recognition). , mean of 10 and a standard deviation of 3) for score comparisons within or between subtests or indexes. , delayed recall adjusted for immediate recall).

The TOPF can be used alone or in conjunction with demographic characteristics to provide estimates of premorbid ability. Demographic variables relate to cognitive and memory ability and predict premorbid ability without additional cognitive functioning measures, such as the TOPF. The ACS provides premorbid estimates of the WAISÀIV and WMSÀIV subtest and index scores using TOPF alone, demographic variables alone, and TOPF and demographics together. Chapter 5 (Predicting Premorbid Ability) provides detailed information on the relationship between demographics and performance on intellectual and memory tests, and the development, use, and interpretation of ACS premorbid estimations.
