The stability of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) over a three-year time span for 60 learning disabled junior high students was investigated. The subjects were classified using an ability/achievement discrepancy formula between the WISC-Rand Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT) and placed in either a resource or full-time special education program. The learning disabled subjects demonstrated stable WISC-R scores with retesting, regardless of special education placement. Differences were found between the special education placements on WISC-R scores, MAT scores, years in special education, and years between testing. Implications for the special education reevaluation process are discussed.
