The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children® (WISC®-IV) is an IQ test that is administered to children ages 6 to 16. Often, the WISC®-IV is used to identify key cognitive strengths and weaknesses related to giftedness and academic admissions. The WISC® test is administered one-on-one by a psychologist. The length of time it takes to complete is typically 60 to 90 minutes, but the time varies depending on the age and stamina of the child.

WISC®-IV is divided into 15 subtests. Each subtest score is combined to yield a Full Scale IQ (FSIQ) which ranges from lowest 40 to highest 160 points.

Questions within each subtest of the WISC® test get progressively more difficult as the test is administered. After the child misses three to four questions in a row incorrectly, the psychologist will move on to the next subtest. Essentially, the IQ score is determined by how far they get within each subtest before missing three questions in a row.

The 15 subtests WISC®-IV are grouped into four categories: Verbal, Perceptual, Working Memory and Processing Speed:

  • VERBAL: Similarities, Vocabulary, Comprehension, Word Reasoning, Information
  • PERCEPTUAL: Block Design, Matrix Reasoning, Picture Concepts, Picture Completion
  • WORKING MEMORY: Digit Span, Letter-Number Sequencing, Arithmetic
  • PROCESSING SPEED: Coding, Symbol Search, Cancellation
