ARAUJO, Jaciana Marlova Gonçalves  e  FIGUEIREDO, Vera Lúcia Marques de. WISC-III reliability based in inter-rater agreement. Bol. psicol [online]. 2013, vol.63, n.138, pp. 1-10. ISSN 0006-5943.

This work aimed to establish Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - Third Edition (WISC-III) reliability indexes through the inter-rater agreement technique, keeping in mind that the scores could be influenced by subjective factors of the raters. Three WISC-III protocols of children of the same age were randomly selected from the Brazilian standardization sample and were scored by 42 psychologists from different States of Brazil. Reliability was assessed through the intraclass correlation index, on the base of total scores. Coefficients were considered strong in general. All nonverbal subtests, except Picture Completion, presented higher indexes than the verbal subtests. Results suggest that objective scoring propitiates greater consensus between the raters, and verbal answers produce more scoring difficulties
