Product Details

COMING FALL 2014!

The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children®–Fifth Edition is the latest version of the most proven, trusted intellectual ability measure in the world. It provides a comprehensive measure of overall intellectual ability, as well as five specific cognitive domains that impact performance in the classroom and beyond. Also included are a number of additional composite scores designed for specific clinical situations.

Features & Benefits

The WISC–V delivers more control, more flexibility, and more content than ever before. It includes notable improvements to make identifying the issues— and finding the solutions—faster and easier, without sacrificing the Wechsler gold standard of excellence.

More critical insights into a child's cognitive abilities

The WISC–V gives you access to more subtest content, resulting in a broader view of the child's cognitive abilities and increased interpretive power. New subtests are targeted to common reasons for referral of children, such as the presence of a specific learning disability, as well as special clinical situations, such as evaluations of children who are English language learners.

  • Separate visual spatial and fluid reasoning composites
  • New measures of naming facility (rapid automatized naming) and associative memory to evaluate cognitive processes relevant to learning disabilities
  • New measures of visual spatial ability, fluid reasoning, and visual working memory
  • New ancillary scores for specific clinical situations
  • Increased options for a flexible, customized assessment

More efficient and user-friendly

The WISC–V empowers you with more control and flexibility by increasing construct coverage but not adding to testing time. Flexibility in the revised structure provides a Full Scale IQ with fewer subtests, allowing more time to utilize other subtests designed for specific clinical situations.

  • Simplified instructions with reduced vocabulary level
  • Reduced testing time to produce five index scores
  • Less time to get the Full Scale IQ
  • Modernized item content and visual stimuli
  • Shorter discontinue rules
  • Refined scoring criteria

More evidence of reliability, validity, and clinical utility

The WISC–V is not tied to just one theory. We've utilized contemporary research on intelligence theory, neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, and clinical practice to produce this latest revision.

  • Basic structure revised to yield five, factor-based index scores
  • Strengths and weaknesses available at both the index and subtest levels
  • Additional link to achievement through studies with both the WIAT®–III and the KTEA™-3

Users & Applications

School psychologists, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists working in schools, clinics, hospitals, universities and forensics can use the WISC–V for diverse applications such as:

  • identifying intellectual disabilities,
  • identifying and diagnosing learning disabilities/disorders,
  • evaluating of cognitive processing strengths and weaknesses,
  • assessing for giftedness, and
  • assessing the impact of brain injuries

  • Understanding cognitive strengths and needs using the WISC-V

    Presenter: Amy Dilworth Gabel, PhD

    When conducting a comprehensive evaluation, it is imperative that the cognitive assessment you use be reliable, valid, developmentally appropriate, and clinically useful. Whether you elect to use the WISC-V on paper, or on the Q-interactive system, we want to help you to understand the benefits of this new edition! This session will provide an overview of how the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V) has been revised to better inform parents and educators about how a student’s cognitive needs and strengths impact learning and other daily activities.

    Content is intended for those practitioners who routinely assess students between the ages of 6 and 16 for the provision of special services. The session will help participants understand how the theoretical underpinnings and content of the measure help them to understand student needs. Particular emphasis will be placed on the fresh aspects of the WISC-V, such as new subtests and index scores, interpretive approaches, and how to make the most out of using WISC-V on Q-interactive. While this session is not intended to provide specific instruction on using Q-interactive or the paper edition of the WISC-V, remember that there will be online training included with your purchase of WISC-V! This session is intended to help you make decisions between a paper and pencil administration and a digital administration, and to prepare you to use the instrument as part of a comprehensive assessment.
