Product Details

Comprehensive, modern, and convenient.

WISC–V Spanish provides a culturally and linguistically valid test of cognitive ability in Spanish for use with Spanish-speaking children ages 6 through 16 years. Adapted from the proven and reliable WISC-V, the WISC-V Spanish brings you more flexibility and content than ever before. Test items have been validated to minimize cultural bias across multiple regions of origin, and modified when needed. While the WISC-V Spanish is given in Spanish, children earn credit for correct answers in either Spanish or English.

Content & Administration

The WISC–V Spanish gives you flexibility and interpretive power, along with access to new subtests, so you get a broader view of a child's cognitive abilities. New subtests are targeted to common referral questions for children such as the presence of a specific learning disability. An expanded factor structure provides new and separate visual spatial and fluid reasoning composites for all ages.

New Subtests

Three new primary subtests extend the content coverage of the WISC-V Spanish and increase its practical application.

  • Visual Puzzles is a new Visual Spatial subtest that measures the ability to analyze and synthesize information

  • Figure Weights is a new Fluid Reasoning subtest that measures quantitative reasoning and induction

  • Picture Span is a new Working Memory subtest that measures visual working memory

Expanded and Updated Factor Structure

The test structure includes new and separate visual spatial and fluid reasoning composites for greater interpretive clarity and a variety of levels of composites for interpretive options.

Primary Index Scales include:

  • Verbal Comprehension Index (VCI)
  • Visual Spatial Index (VSI)
  • Working Memory Index (WMI)
  • Fluid Reasoning Index (FRI)
  • Processing Speed Index (PSI)

A variety of Ancillary Index Scales will be available including the General Ability Index.

  • Equated to the English normative sample using IRT approach
  • Updated normative sample standardized on 2,200 children aged 6:0–16:11
  • Normative sample stratified to match current U.S. census data based on sex, race/ethnicity, parent education level, and geographic region for each age group
  • Includes additional validity evidence based on Spanish-speaking clinical and validity samples

Users & Applications

  • identifying intellectual disabilities;
  • identifying and diagnosing learning disabilities/disorders;

  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students: Best Practice for Cognitive Assessments

    Presenter: Alexander Quiros, PhD

    This 2-hour introductory workshop will cover basic information all psychologists should know about bilingual assessments: proper selection of bilingual assessment, language disorders vs. language differences, use of an interpreter, and important language and cultural issues that should be considered when working with bilingual clients. Although many of the examples will draw from work with Spanish-English bilinguals, the information shared during this presentation applies to all multi-lingual individuals.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Learn about issues unique to cognitive and language development in bilingual individuals with a focus on children.
    2. Learn proper use of assessment tools and results of bilingual individuals.
    3. Learn about assessment tools available in languages other than English.
