Measure foundational academic with the WRAT5

The WRAT5 provides an accurate and easy-to-administer way to assess and monitor the reading, spelling, and maths skills in people aged 5–85+ and helps identify possible learning disabilities.

WRAT5 Benefits:

  • Test learners of all ages using the same assessment
  • Screen individuals or small groups (with some subtests) to help identify those requiring a more comprehensive academic achievement evaluation
  • Administer only the subtests that are needed
  • Administer with paper and pencil or digitally with Q-interactive
  • Digitally score and report using Q-global

WRAT5 Features:

  • Efficient completion time—test can be completed in as little as 15 minutes for younger children and as little as 30 minutes for older children and adults
  • Simple administration rules and clear scoring guidelines, contributing to accurate and timely data
  • Grade-based start points, simple reversal rules, and clear discontinue rules

What’s new in WRAT5

The WRAT5 is upgraded with data reflecting current populations based on recent census information. Updates include:

  • Improved identification of learning disabilities
  • Streamlining of rules
  • Digital administration, scoring, and reporting
  • Subtest improvements

WRAT5 Test Structure

The WRAT5 provides derived scores and interpretive information for four subtests:

  • Word Reading measures untimed letter identification and word recognition. The examinee reads aloud a list of letters/words
  • Sentence Comprehension measures the ability to identify the meaning of words and to comprehend the ideas and information in a sentence using an untimed modified cloze procedure. Each item requires the examinee to read (aloud or silently) a sentence with a word missing, and then say the word that best completes the sentence
  • Spelling measures an individual's ability to write letters and words from dictation without a time limit
  • Maths Computation measures an individual's ability to count, identify numbers, solve simple oral maths problems, and calculate written maths problems with a time limit. Problems are presented in a range of domains, including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and advanced operations
  • Reading Composite score is created by combining the Word Reading and Sentence Comprehension standard scores
