What is the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V) is an intelligence test
that measures a child's intellectual ability and 5 cognitive domains that
impact performance.
The WISC-V takes 45–65 minutes to administer. It generates a Full Scale
IQ that represents a child's general intellectual ability.
It also provides five primary index scores: Verbal Comprehension Index,
Visual Spatial Index, Fluid Reasoning Index, Working Memory Index,
and Processing Speed Index. These indices represent a child's abilities
in discrete cognitive domains. Five ancillary composite scores can be
derived from various combinations of primary or primary and
secondary subtests.
The WISC-V Integrated comprises 14 subtests, eight of which are
adaptations of WISC-V subtests. From the 14 subtests, 18 scaled scores,
allowing comparison of the test taker to others of the same
chronological age, are derived.
