FAQs

Select a question below to see the response.

Essay Composition

Why does the Composite Structure section of the Record Form show the Essay Composition subtest for Grades 4-12+ but not for Grade 3?

Essay Composition can be administered at Grade 3, but this subtest is not included in the Written Expression composite until Grade 4.

What should the examiner do if the examinee cannot read the target word for one or more items on the Sentence Writing Fluency subtest?

The examiner is not permitted to read the target words for the examinee. However, examinees are permitted to skip an item, if needed, as indicated in the administration instructions.

How is WIAT-4 Essay Composition scored?

Option 1

The Essay Composition subtest can be scored automatically via Q-global or Q-interactive. Automated scoring is more consistent but just as reliable as hand scoring. Human scores and automated scores share a strong correlation.

Option 2

For paper and pencil customers without access to Q-global or Q-interactive, Essay Composition can be hand scored using the (correct minus incorrect word sequences) scoring rules provided in the manual.

How do I use automated scoring?

To use automated scoring, you will need internet access and a Q-global or Q-interactive account that includes WIAT-4. The following steps are followed to utilize automated scoring of Essay Composition:

  • Step 1: The examinee hand writes the essay in the Response Booklet;
  • Step 2: Within Q-global or Q-interactive, the examiner transcribes the essay by typing the essay exactly as it was written into the essay entry field;
  • Step 3: The essay is submitted and scored by Pearson's Intelligent Essay Assessor™ (IEA). Results are returned in seconds.

How do I transcribe letter reversals?

Letter reversals are not penalized in scoring, so you would type those letters in normally.

How do I transcribe illegible words?

Illegible words should be clarified following the guidelines provided in the manual.

Why do examinees hand write, instead of type, their essays?

Typing is a skill that not all examinees have acquired. Under timed conditions, examinees who type well can write more and score higher than examinees who cannot type well. In addition, many students, especially in the early grades, hand write essays in school, so this method has ecological validity.

Did the Essay Composition scoring rules change from WIAT-III to WIAT-4?

The WIAT-4 scoring rules are based on the (unchanged) Grammar & Mechanics score from the WIAT-III, which correlates strongly with overall writing quality and has high clinical sensitivity. The WIAT-III scores for Word Count and Content & Organization are not included in the WIAT-4; instead, a Content and Organization Qualitative Analysis is provided to assess these areas.

What is the Intelligent Essay Assessor (IEA)?

A patented technology based on over twenty years of research and development, IEA has been proven to score written essays as accurately as trained human scorers. IEA scores essays based on the traits included in the hand scoring rubric.

How does the IEA score an essay?

The IEA scoring engine assesses the grammar/syntax and the mechanics of the transcribed essay. When an examiner submits an essay for scoring, the IEA assesses features of the essay and compares the essay to a training set - a large database of training essays previously scored by human scorers. The IEA assigns a score based in part on the similarity of the essay to the training set.

Can the IEA score highly unusual or very brief essays?

Examiners should not attempt to score essays that are written in a language other than English, incomprehensible essays (e.g., essays with a high number of severely misspelled words), or essays that are completely off topic (i.e., the examinee did not follow the instructions). Essays must have a minimum word count of 30 to be scored; however, at least 40 words is recommended.

General

Is there a way to administer the WIAT-4 Canadian remotely in two separate locations?

Digital assets are available for remote administration of the WIAT-4 Canadian. WIAT-4 telepractice guidance documents are provided here.

Are there special considerations for interpreting WIAT-4 results with students who struggled to learn virtually during the pandemic?

Guidance for score interpretation following a period of educational disruption is included in the WIAT-4 Technical & Interpretive manual, and on the Pearson telepractice website under Resources.

Will there be a validity study with the WIAT-4 and the WAIS?

Yes, these data will publish with the upcoming WAIS-V Canadian. At the time of the WIAT-4 Canadian development, WAIS-V Canadian was also in development, so the decision was made to complete the validity study using both new versions. More information about this validity study will be available as the WAIS-V Canadian development and release unfolds.

If I am a Q-interactive user, do I need to add-on the new WIAT-4 Canadian to my license?

If you have the WIAT-III Canadian edition on your “light” or “max” license as an existing user, you will automatically gain access to the WIAT-4 Canadian edition upon release. You do not need to do anything for this digital version. However, you will need to preorder WIAT-4 Canadian Response Booklets (A103000393427) to complete what is needed for administration.
