The Hamburg Wechsler Intelligenztest für Kinder (HAWIK-IV; the German version of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale forChildren-Fourth Edition) and the newly designed Intelligence and Development Scales (IDS) were administered in counterbalanced orderto 77 gifted children and 77 nongifted children, aged 6 to 10 years. Samples were matched for age, sex, and socioeconomic status. Resultsreveal that both the HAWIK-IV and the IDS are able to distinguish between gifted and nongifted children. Moderate correlations betweenthe tests indicate that the measures assess similar, but not identical constructs. Results are discussed as they pertain to the assessmentand special needs of gifted children.
