Resumen

RODRIGUEZ, Marcela Alejandra  y  VIZCARRA, María Beatriz. Use of WISC III in Chile: Analysis of strengths and limitations according to the perception of psychologists. Rev. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.2, pp.36-48. ISSN 0716-8039.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5354/0719-0581.2019.52316.

The purpose of the present study was to explore psychologist’s perceptions about the strengths, weaknesses, and challenges when using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-III, Chilean version). An online survey was conducted with the voluntary participation of 160 psychologists from all over the country, though most of them were from the Araucanía region. Participants highlight as strengths of the instrument the fact that it provides a complete profile of cognitive skills, and its attractiveness for children. Among the limitations, they pointed to the presence of outdated items, and to potential biases as a function of socioeconomic level and/or the rural origin of children. Results are discussed in terms of the challenges posed by adequate training in intellectual assessment, the need for accreditation in the use of tests, and best practices in psychological assessment, in general.

Palabras clave : WISC-III; training in psychological assessment; best practices in psychological assessment.
