Beyond CHC: ITD—Within-CHC Domain Complexity Optimized Measures
Utilization of the ITD test design principle of optimizing within-CHC cognitively complexity of clusters suggests that a different emphasis and configuration of WJ III tests might be more appropriate. It is proposed that the above WJ III cluster complexity priority or feature model would likely allow practitioners to administer the best predictors of school achievement. I further hypothesize that this cognitive complexity based broad+narrow test design principle most likely applies to other intelligence test batteries that have adhered to the primary focus on featuring tests that are the purest indicators of two or more narrow abilities within the provided broad CHC interpretation scheme. Of course, this is an empirical question that begs research with other batteries. More useful with be similar MDS Radex cognitive complexity analysis of cross-battery intelligence data sets.
