The Modified WAIS‐R (WAIS‐RM) is an approach that integrates the procedures of Vincent (1979) and Himelstein (1983). Using the information subtest score as a guide, starting points on 7 of the remaining 10 subscales are upgraded in a way that can shorten administration time of the WAIS‐R by as much as 30%. WAIS‐R to WAIS‐RM correlations for Verbal, Performance, and Full Scale IQs were 0.995, 0.996, and 0.998, respectively (N = 50). Subtest scatter profiles were shown to be retained accurately. This approach appears to have promise as a shortened WAIS‐R that retains its clinical utility.
