Auther : Dr. Fawziyah A. Hadi - Prof. Salah A. Mourad

     The purpose of this study was to standardize The Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI-III) according to Kuwaiti culture in particular and Gulf society in general, in order to determine the psychometric properties of the scale, and develop norms for each age level for verbal IQ, performance IQ, and Total IQ. The Eleven subscales were culturally translated and adapted to Kuwaiti society. Specialists in the field reviewed the items of the subscales, and modifications were done based on their comments.
     The Scale was pilot tested twice and based on the statistical analyses, modifications were done. In the standardization sample of children which ranged from 2:9 to 7:3 years old,  psychometric properties were estimated. Gender and developmental differences were also estimated for each subscale. Tables of Norms were developed for children aged (2:9- 3:11 yrs old) and (3:4 -7) yrs old. Internal consistency ranged from (0,335- 0,873), and  criterion validity with WISC ranged from (0,437 - 0,590) significant at 0.001%, whereas with Drawing a man ranged from (0,332- 0,336) and significant at 0.05% for both performance and total IQ but not with verbal IQ.  Reliabilities ranged from 0,75- 0,97 and all are high indications.
