Extension of the Wechsler Memory Scale norms to older age groups

J Clin Psychol. 1977 Jan;33(1):208-11. doi: 10.1002/1097-4679(197701)33:1+<208::aid-jclp2270330146>3.0.co;2-e.


To extend the norms of the Wechsler Memory Scale, Form I, to older age groups, the test was administered to 64 Ss 60 years of age and older. Because there was significant correlation between WMS performance and IQ, the results were broken down further into IQ ranges. In addition to the standard administration of the WMS, a 1-hour delayed recall of the Logical Memory subtest was included. Performance on the delayed recall task by 51 younger Ss also was presented.
