Scoring

Scores that can be generated by the SB5 include: Full Scale IQ, Nonverbal IQ, Verbal IQ, Abbreviated Battery IQ, Standard Scores, Percentile Ranks, Change-Sensitive Scores, and Extended IQ.  The SB5 can be hand-scored or scored with optional scoring software.

Interpretation

At the most granular level of the norm-referenced scores are the 10 subtest scores (scales scores have a mean of 10, SD=3, score range 1-19).  These subtest scores combine to form four types of composite scores: factor index, domain, abbreviated, and full scale (each with scaled score means of 100, SD=15, score range 40-160).  Two subtests (one verbal, the other its nonverbal complement) combine to form each factor index.  There are two domain scales: Nonverbal IQ (combines the five nonverbal subtests) and Verbal IQ (combines the five verbal subtests).  Two routing subtests combine to form the Abbreviated Battery IQ.  Finally, the Full Scale, IQ combines all 10 subtests.

Software

SB5 ScoringPro

The SB5 ScoringPro is a Windows®-based software program that replicates the process of hand-scoring.  Users enter background information, age, and raw scores.  This program provides consistency in raw score conversion, and extended score report, a graphical report, and a brief, narrative summary report with guidelines and suggestions based on well-established principles of assessment.  The report can be exported and then imported to a word processing file for editing as necessary.
