Description
The WISC-V represents a major revision with new content, six new subtests and a new test structure aligned to five clinically and theoretically driven factor-based index scores. It can be administered in multiple formats (traditional and digital) and offers numerous ancillary scores for special clinical purposes. The presenters of this intermediate workshop, primary developers of the WISC-V, offer an insider’s perspective on the revision process. In-depth didactic instruction and hands-on experience is used to convey the critical aspects of the revision.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe the revisions and changes to the WISC-V that affect the test's theoretical foundations, user-friendliness, psychometric properties, developmental appropriateness, and clinical utility.
2. Describe the rationale and constructs measured by six new subtests.
3. Administer and score six new subtests and adjust administration and scoring techniques for revised subtests.
4. Apply digital administration and scoring of the WISC-V subtests, including substantial changes since the WISC-IV was released in a digital format.
5. Comprehend the revised test structure and enhancements to interpretative approaches.
7. Analyze and interpret the WISC-V profile at a primary index, subtest, and ancillary (special applications) score level.
