The WISC®-V is the latest edition of the Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children. It is used to assess intelligence in children between 6 and 16 years.The WISC-V takes between 48 and 65 minutes to administer. It is made up of 16 primary subtests (that deliver the full scale IQ score) and five complementary subtests.
New elements of the WISC-V include three primary subtests (visual puzzles, figure weights and picture span) and five complementary subtests. The complementary subtests are used to ensure that the WISC-V accurately reflects the intelligence of all children, including those with learning disabilities, motor skill difficulties, autism and autistic spectrum disorders and a host of other impairments.
