Does your child need to take the WISC®-IV or WISC®-V test to get into a private school or gifted program? If you are concerned about it or just want to ensure your child is not at a disadvantage, it's important that your child become familiar with the test subject matter and question format. Experts agree that it is possible to prepare for an IQ test. Your child's education is just too important to leave to chance.
What is the WISC® Test?
The Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children/WISC®, is used to assess intelligence in children between the ages of 6 to 16 years old. IQ tests don't assess learned knowledge such as reading and math. Instead, they measure a child's learning capabilities through verbal and non-verbal exercises. For this reason, they are a far better predictor of future academic 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.
Why the WISC® Tests are Important
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.
Preparing for the WISC® Tests
