Abstract Evidence of the factorial structure of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth Edition was established through Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analyses. Recently, network models have been developed as an alternative way of assessing factorial structure. The network approach assumes that cognitive ability results from the causal interplay between processes involved in subtests scores and focuses on these subtests and their complex associations. The WISC-IV network was analyzed through the correlations between 11 subtests scores. Participants included 483 French-speaking Swiss children. Although network model supported a four-factor structure, this four-factor structure did not correspond to the expected saturated partial correlation network, challenging the existence of the general factor of intelligence. Network approach allows assessing the centrality of each subtest, and indicated that vocabulary and similarities are the two most central subtests in the network, while Coding was the most peripheral one’s.
