Product Details

The WISC-V-CDN gives school psychologists, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists flexibility and interpretive power to get a broader view of a child's cognitive abilities.


  • Increase construct coverage without increasing test time.
  • Identify and diagnose intellectual and learning disabilities/disorders.
  • Evaluate cognitive processing strengths and weaknesses.
  • Assess giftedness and the impact of brain injuries.
  • Significantly reduce testing time to obtain FSIQ.
  • Supports more flexible evaluation of specific learning disabilities and two major approaches to specific learning disability identification: (1) pattern of strengths and weaknesses analyses and (2) ability-achievement discrepancy analyses.


WISC-V delivers more flexibility, more content and more interpretive power.

  • Three new primary subtests — Visual Puzzles, Figure Weights, and Picture Span — measure the ability to analyze and synthesize information, quantitative reasoning and induction, and visual working memory.
  • Five new complementary subtests assess cognitive processes important to academic achievement in reading, math, and writing.
  • Simplified instructions with reduced vocabulary level, shorter discontinue rules and refined scoring criteria.
  • Full scoring reports and interpretive reports include narrative interpretation scores.
  • Separate visual spatial and fluid reasoning composite scores results in greater interpretive clarity.
  • Automatically converts total raw scores to subtest scaled scores and sums of scaled scores to composites scores.
  • Statistical links to two measures of academic achievement: KTEA-3 and WIAT-III-CDN. See a comparison between WISC-V-CDN and WIAT-III-CDN.
