ABSTRACT
The WISC test patterns of 28 bright and gifted underachievers were compared with those of 23 bright and gifted achievers. A comparison also was made of 36 normal-level underachievers with 22 normal-level achievers. Significant differences were found between underachievers and achievers at both levels. A second step involved a rank comparison between the underachievers at both intellectual levels and achievers at both intellectual levels. The WISC In formation subtest was the only subtest to show a significant rank deviation between the bright and gifted and normal-level underachievers. No rank deviation differences were found between the achievers at the two different levels.
