This research studied the interchangeability of individually administered and group administered cognitive tests. Seventy undergraduate students took the Hebrew version of the WAIS-R (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale - Revised), and their IQs were measured. They also took the IPET (Israeli Psychometric Entrance Test) and their IPET scores were produced. Product-moment correlations between WAIS-R and IPET scales were calculated. The correlation between WAIS-R IQ and IPET General Score was found to be r = 0.81. Implications of the findings for the selection of highly able students are discussed.
