Integration of the WJ IV, WISC-V, WISC-V Integrated, and WIAT-III into a School Neuropsychological Assessment Model
Miller, Daniel C.
School Psychology Forum, v9 n3 p251-268 Fall 2015
The Woodcock-Johnson-Fourth edition (WJ IV; Schrank, McGrew, & Mather, 2014a) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth edition (WISC-V; Wechsler, 2014) are two of the major tests of cognitive abilities used in school psychology. The complete WJ IV battery includes the Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities (Schrank, McGrew, & Mather, 2014b), the Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Oral Language (Schrank, Mather, & McGrew, 2014b), and the Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Achievement (Schrank, Mather, & McGrew, 2014a). The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth edition Integrated (WISC-V Integrated; Wechsler & Kaplan, 2015) is to be published in the fall of 2015. The purpose of this article is to present how the tests from the WJ IV, the WISC-V, the WISC-V Integrated, and the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test-Third edition (Wechsler, 2009a) can be integrated into a school neuropsychological assessment model. The first section of the article discusses how the Carroll-Horn-Cattell theory is merging with contemporary neuropsychological theories. The second section of this article introduces a school neuropsychological conceptual model and illustrates how the tests from these batteries are classified according to that model.
