Two options for scoring and reporting the WIAT-III are now available on Q-global.

The first option is to pay per-report. Customers who administer the WIAT-III only a few times each year, or those who want the flexibility to pay only as the assessment is used, may prefer this option.

The second option is to select an "unlimited use" subscription, where one user of the WIAT-III gets unlimited scoring and reporting for one, three, or five years depending on the selected term of the subscription. This may be a better option for customers who administer the WIAT-III several times each year—and don't want to worry about keeping track of their report expenses.

Scoring and/or Reporting Options

Q-global™ Web-based Administration, Scoring, and Reporting – Enables you to quickly assess and efficiently organize examinee information, generate scores, and produce accurate comprehensive reports all via the Web.

WIAT-III on Q-global also provides:

  • Enhanced skill analysis for core subtests at item level and sub-item level
  • Intervention goal statements for core subtests to assist with IEP goals and to help develop planning for intervention
  • Annual goals and short-term objectives for problem areas based on specific abilities, strengths, and weaknesses
  • Research-supported alternatives for determining severe learning disability and non-responders within an RTI environment
  • Parent Report, with a description of each subtest, as well as information to help the parent understand the WIAT-III scores
