Perhaps spurred by the success of computerized interpretive services for personality and interest inventories such as the MMPI and the Strong-Campbell II and the realization that most school psychologists have more referrals requiring psychological evaluation than they can possibly attend to in any reasonable period of time, two interpretive systems for the WISC-Rhave recently come on the scene. Although the Tardor System (Vittelli & Goldblatt) and theWISC-R Compilation (Whitworth & Sutton) take very different approaches to providing the psychologist with interpretive information, they do have some common characteristics. Both systems lack any coherent theoretical conceptualization and have no basis in research or psychometric theory and little (if indeed any) basis in logic.
