Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children® -
Fourth UK Edition (WISC-IV
UK)
David Wechsler, 2004

Overview:
Measure a child's intellectual ability

Age Range:
6 to 16 years 11 months

This fourth generation of the most widely used children’s intellectual ability assessment meets your testing needs for the twenty-first century. While maintaining the integrity of the Wechsler tradition, the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children® - Fourth UK Edition (WISC-IVUK) builds on contemporary approaches in cognitive psychology and intellectual assessment, giving you a new, powerful and efficient tool to help develop and support your clinical judgements.

Even Stronger Clinical Utility

Understanding of learning difficulties and attentional disorders has greatly expanded since the publication of the WISC–IIIUK.
WISC-IVUK makes important advances from previous edition in order to provide the most effective clinical tool representing cutting edge research and thinking. This timely revision is the result of over a decade of research and success with the WISC–IIIUK.

Benefits of
WISC-IVUK


Subtest Changes
Three WISC–IIIUK subtests have been eliminated from
WISC-IVUK: Object Assembly, Mazes and Picture Arrangement. WISC–IIIUK subtests that are now supplemental include Picture Completion, Arithmetic and Information.

New Subtests
Several new subtests are added to reflect current clinical knowledge and practice:

Four Composite Scores
In order to make interpretation more clinical meaningful, the dual IQ and Index structure from WISC–IIIUK has been replaced with a single system of four composite scores (consistent with the Four Index Scores in WISC–IIIUK) and the Full Scale IQ. This new system helps you better understand a child’s needs in relation to contemporary theory and research in cognitive information processing.
