Intelligence Test Score Interpretation

By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D

Q: I just got my daughters result from her IQ test and PR. Her scores from IQ test is 117 while her PR is 87. Kindly interpret it for me. Thank you.

A: I assume this to be the latest version of the WISC. It is a little difficult to determine much from these scores alone as all the scores and percentiles are required for better interpretation. However, I will help interpret based on the scores provided but it may not accurately be descriptive of your daughter's performance.

The Full Scale IQ (FSIQ) of 117 indicates a rather high intelligence quotient, however not amounting to the level of giftedness. However, the Full Scale IQ score of the WISC-IV often does not represent a child's intellectual abilities as well as the General Ability Index (GAI) so you may want to check on that.

The Perceptual Reasoning Index (PRI) is designed to measure nonverbal concept formation, visual perception and organization, simultaneous processing, visual-motor coordination, learning, and the ability to separate figure and ground in visual stimuli. The results show a rather low average of the PRI indicating some concerns in ability to do perceptual reasoning.

Unfortunately, the information given is very limited so the interpretation is solely based on the two scores, therefore should not be taken absolutely. You may want to speak to the administrator for a more detailed report and perhaps request for further interpretation. Good luck!
