WJ-IV Cognitive Test of Ability
This webinar will describe the subtests of the Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities (WJ IV COG) and how they relate to similar subtests on the WISC-V. Additional charts and graphs to help communicate results to parents and teachers will be provided. Qualifications for administering this and all other cognitive tests are at the highest level of assessment training.
First published in 2014, according to the Pearson website: The WJ-IV Cog contains the greatest breadth of cognitive abilities of any standardized body of tests. New subtests and clusters have been designed to place emphasis on the most useful measures for identifying individuals’ patterns of strengths and weaknesses. Understanding relative strengths and weaknesses in comparison with the Gf-Gc Composite can lead to individualized instruction designed to target identified learning needs. A new Gf-Gc Composite for comparison with other cognitive, oral, and achievement measures and new working memory, perceptual speed, and phonological processing measures help to make an easy-to-use intra-cognitive variation procedure, allowing for documentation of cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
