Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fourth Edition (WISC-IV)

The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fourth Edition (WISC-IV) is an individually administered instrument for assessing the cognitive ability of children ages 6 years through 16 years, 11 months. The WISC-IV includes the Full Scale Intelligence Quotient (FSIQ), which assesses overall cognitive abilities. The WISC-IV also includes four index scores which are combined to form the FSIQ. The Verbal Comprehension Index measures an individuals verbal reasoning and knowledge. It includes tasks such as describing how two things are alike, providing definitions of words, and verbally responding to questions about social situations or general principles. The Perceptual Reasoning Index measures an individuals ability to understand visual analogies and patterns. It includes tasks such as visually looking at a picture and then recreating the picture with blocks, identifying missing items from pictures, and identifying the response that completes a visual pattern. The Working Memory Index measures the ability to temporarily retain information in memory, perform some operation on the information, and produce a response based on the manipulation of the information. It includes tasks such as remembering a series of numbers presented orally and then reproducing the number series either forward or backward and remembering a series of numbers and letters presented orally and then reproducing the number-letter series in a specified sequence (e.g., all numbers in numerical order followed by all letters in alphabetical order). The Processing Speed Index measures an individuals ability to produce correct responses quickly. It includes tasks such as transferring symbols that are paired with numbers from a key as quickly as possible, identifying matching symbols as quickly as possible, and crossing out specific items on a page with several distraction items as quickly as possible.

The WISC-IV provides standard scores with a mean or average score of 100 and a standard deviation, or unit of distance from the mean, of 15. The test also provides a confidence interval for the standard scores. A confidence interval provides a range for understanding and interpreting each score, and for ________________, it indicated that there is a 95% chance that his true score falls within this range. Confidence intervals will be presented in parentheses following all standard scores. Finally, the test provides percentile ranks, which tell how many individuals the same age obtained the same score or lower.

Woodcock-John (3RD Edition) Test of Cognitive Ability

The Woodcock-Johnson (3rd Edition) Test of Cognitive Ability (WJ-III COG) is an individually administered intelligence scale for ages 2 years to 90+ years. The WJ-III COG provides a measure of General Intellectual Ability (GIA), which assesses the overall performance on the test and is the best predictor of overall school achievement.

The WJ-III COG also consists of several clusters of cognitive ability including the 1) Visual-Spatial Thinking cluster, which measures the ability to perceive, analyze, synthesize, and think with visual patterns; 2) Executive Processes cluster which measures three aspects of executive functioning, including: strategic planning, proactive interference control, and the ability to shift repeatedly ones mental set; 3) Thinking Ability cluster, which measures different thinking ability processes including visual-spatial thinking, auditory processing, and fluid reasoning; 4) Verbal Ability cluster, which measures language development that includes the comprehension of individual words and the compression of relationships among words; 5) Cognitive Efficiency cluster, which measures the capability of the cognitive system to process information automatically; 6) Comprehension-Knowledge cluster, which measures the breadth and depth of a persons acquired knowledge, the ability to communicate ones knowledge, and the ability to reason using previously learned experiences or procedures; 7) Long-Term Retrieval cluster, which measures the ability to store information and fluently retrieve it later in the process of thinking; 8) Auditory Processing cluster, which measures the ability to analyze, synthesize, and discriminate auditory stimuli, including the ability to process and discriminate speech sound that may be presented under distorted conditions; 9) Fluid Reasoning cluster which measures the broad ability to reason, form concepts, and solve problems using unfamiliar information or novel procedures; 10) Processing Speed cluster, which measures the ability to perform automatic cognitive tasks under pressure to maintain focused attention; 11) Short-Term Memory cluster, which measures the ability to apprehend and hold information and then use it within a few seconds; 12) Phonemic Awareness cluster, which measures the knowledge and skills related to analyzing and synthesizing speech sounds; 13) Working Memory cluster, which measures the ability to hold information in immediate awareness while performing a mental operation on the information; 14) Broad Attention cluster, which measures focused or selective attention, sustained attention, divided attention, and attention capacity or working memory; and a 15) Cognitive Fluency cluster, which measures the ease and speed by which an individual performs a cognitive task.

The WJ-III COG provides standard scores with a mean or average of 100 and a standard deviation of 15, which is a unit of distance from the mean. The test also provides a confidence interval for the standard scores, which means that there is 95% chance that the Brandons true scores falls within a certain range around the standard score (these scores are in parentheses immediately following the standard score in the results section). Finally, the test provides percentile ranks, which tells how many individuals the same age obtained the same score or lower.

A summary of __________s scores on the WJ-III COG is listed on the table below.
