Abstract
The main aims of this study were to develop norms for the Wisconsin Card So rting Test in 6- to 11-year-old children in Taiwan; to explore the effect o f sex, age, birth order, number of siblings, and parental education on WCST performance in 6- to 11-year-old children; and to make a comparison of WCS T performance between children in Taiwan and the USA. The results of this c omparison of developmental norms of school children in Taiwan and the Unite d States may facilitate the WCST as a clinical or research instrument in co mbination with other test procedures to assess aspects of cognitive and neu ropsychological functioning of school children.
