The WISC IV and V tests are used to assess intelligence in children between 6 and 16 years. It delivers a full scale IQ (intelligence quotient), which is thought to be an excellent tool in revealing intelligence. Intelligence quotient tests do not assess learned knowledge such as reading and math. Instead, they are used to measure the learning capabilities of a child. For this reason, they are a far better predictor of future success, especially in children who are not traditionally exceptional students. The most recent version of the Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children, WISC-V, was released in 2014.
The WISC tests are extremely important in school settings, particularly for those students seeking admission to advanced placement classes, a gifted program within their current school or a gifted school. Advanced and gifted programs often use the WISC test as part of an entrance examination battery.
The WISC test is a difficult test because most children have not been exposed to its unique question types. Make sure your child is prepared with The Test Tutor's materials, wrriten by licensed psychologists.
