Abstract
In recent years, there has been a movement toward use of digital platforms to administer cognitive, achievement, and neuropsychological assessments. Principal changes were made to the Processing Speed subtests of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fifth edition (WISC-V) - Coding (CD) and Symbol Search (SS) - for adaptation from a paper-pencil format to a digital format. The aim of the current study is to assess whether paper-pencil and digital formats of CD and SS interchangeably measure the same construct: processing speed. The impact of psychomotor coordination on differences in performance between paper and digital versions of subtests was also examined. A total of 41 students between the ages of 13.0 and 16.11 were administered a demographic questionnaire and the Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration--Sixth Edition (Beery VMI) full form followed by CD in digital format (CD-D), CD in paper-pencil format (CD-P), SS in digital format (SS-D), and SS in paper-pencil format (SS-P) administered in counterbalanced sequences. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations, and a two-tailed paired t-test to assess relationships between variables. Results of the study indicate correlations between paper-pencil and digital scores on CD, SS, and the Processing Speed Index (PSI) were lower than hypothesized thresholds for equivalence. The Multitrait Multimethod Matrix (MTMM) was applied to examine evidence for convergent and discriminant validity of CD and SS; results were mixed. Finally, examinee's scores on measures of visual-motor coordination did not share a significant relationship with differences between scores on the digital format and on the paper-pencil format. Limitations of the study, as well as implications for practice and future research directions, are discussed.
