The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Third Edition (W AlS-III: Wechsler, 1997) is widely used and has been well researched (Kaufman & Lichtenberger, 2002). One area of research that has been neglected is the thoroughness of interpretative evaluation reports produced by students in training. Without a reliable measure to investigate the quality of the reports only subjective criteria can be applied to examine them. In order to allow a standardized measure to explore this area, an Excel based interpretative program has been created that follows the guidelines contained in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Association, & National Council on Measurement in Education, 1999). The initial validation for this computer-based test interpretation (CBTI) is reported here.
