Abstract

This study presents results of confirmatory factor analyses of the recently published Fourth Edition of the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale. Four possible models of the scale's factor structure were tested with confirmatory factor analysis via LISREL at five age levels and for the standardiza tion sample as a whole. Results of these analyses show that although the four-factor model presented by the scale's authors fits the general standardiza tion data fairly well, it did not fit similarly well with data from several age groups. Overall, however, models based on the authors' theoretical structure were usually significantly better fitting to empirical data than were models with fewer fac tors. Results are discussed in terms of their im plications for interpretation and use of the Stanford-Binet, Fourth Edition with young children.
