The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children –Fifth Edition (WISC-V; Wechsler, 2014) provides a measure of general intellectual functioning (Full Scale Intelligence Quotient [FSIQ]) and five index scores (Verbal Comprehension, Visual Spatial, Fluid Reasoning, Working Memory, and Processing Speed).
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children –Fifth Edition can be used to assess individuals between the ages of 6 years and 16 years, 11 months. Its framework is based on theory and is supported by clinical research and factor-analytic results. The WISC-V consists of 16 core subtests and three ancillary subtests. The WISC-V is statistically linked to the WIAT-III and the KTEA-3. Instructions are briefer and shorter; discontinue rules are new features to decrease testing time from the WISC-IV.
