The subjects were 38 children used K-WISC-III, and 41 children used K-WISC-IV. Each subtest and index score were collected and analyzed with dependent and independent t tests. Full Scale IQ(FSIQ) and ‘Similarity’ score were significantly lower in the K-WISC-IV than in the K-WISC-III. The differences in index scores were examined, it was observed that Working Memory Index(WMI) was lower than Perceptual Reasoning Index(PRI) on the K-WISC-IV.
