Technical Information

Technical Information

WISC-V 

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 studies

  • 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
