Content & Administration
The WISC–V gives you flexibility and interpretive power, along with access to more subtests, so you get a broader view of a child's cognitive abilities. An expanded factor structure provides new and separate visual spatial and fluid reasoning composites for all ages.
New Primary Subtests
Three new primary subtests extend the content coverage of the WISC-V and increase its practical application.
Visual Puzzles is a new Visual Spatial subtest that measures the ability to analyse and synthesise information
Figure Weights is a new Fluid Reasoning subtest that measures quantitative reasoning and induction
Picture Span is a new Working Memory subtest that measures visual working memory
Expanded and Updated Factor Structure
The test structure includes new and separate visual spatial and fluid reasoning composites for greater interpretive clarity and a variety of levels of composites for interpretive options.
Features & Benefits
More efficient and user-friendly
The WISC–V increases construct coverage without increasing testing time. So, you get a more efficient, developmentally appropriate measure– and still have time to assess other domains of interest.
Efficiently produce all primary index scores
Significantly reduced testing time to obtain the FSIQ
Simplified instructions with reduced vocabulary level, shorter discontinue rules, and refined scoring criteria
Five primary index scores, the FSIQ as well as three of the five ancillary index scores can be obtained through the ten primary subtests
More interpretive power
WISC–V provides statistical links to the WIAT-III, to support more flexible evaluation of specific learning disabilities and two major approaches to specific learning disability identification: pattern of strengths and weaknesses analyses and ability-achievement discrepancy analyses
Expanded score analysis approach highlights index- and subtest-level strength and weaknesses analyses
Separate visual spatial and fluid reasoning composite scores results in greater interpretive clarity
Selection of process scores has been greatly expanded to enhance the depth of interpretation and understanding of performance
Updated psychometric properties
Updated normative sample standardized on Australian and New Zealand children aged 6:0–16:11
Normative sample stratified to match current Australian and New Zealand census data based on gender, ethnicity, parent education level, and geographic region for each age group
Strong subtest floors and ceilings facilitate accurate measurement at the extremes of cognitive ability
Comparable or improved reliability for subtest and composite scores
Updated special group studies
Updated validity studies with other measures including WISC–IV, WPPSI–IV, WAIS–IV, WIAT–III, KTEA-3, Vineland-II, and BASC-2
Expanded validity evidence for the Q-interactive version, including construct validity studies and equivalence of Q-interactive and paper/pencil formats, and special group studies to examine patterns of performance of children from frequently-tested populations
Users & Applications
Psychologists working in schools, clinics, hospitals, universities and forensics can use the WISC–V for diverse applications such as:
identifying intellectual disabilities,
identifying and diagnosing learning disabilities/disorders,
evaluating of cognitive processing strengths and weaknesses,
assessing for giftedness, and
assessing the impact of brain injuries

The differential diagnosis between cognitive and language disorder: is it IQ or language?
Join Consultant Psychologist, Valorie O’Keefe and Consultant Speech Pathologist, Angela Kinsella-Ritter, as we workshop case studies to determine if the concerns are cognitive- or language- based through analyses of various cognitive assessments (including WISC-V and WPPSI-IV) and the CELF-4 in this complimentary 1-hour webinar.
