Book SynopsisPractical, in-depth guidance for WISC-V and WISC-V Integrated assessment
Essentials of WISC-V Integrated Assessment is the ideal companion for psychologists and other assessment professionals seeking helpful interpretive and practical information beyond the WISC-V and WISC-V Integrated published manuals. Beginning with an overview of the test and its application to educational intervention, this book provides in-depth information on new administrative, scoring, and interpretation procedures specific to the WISC-V and the WISC-V Integrated.
Insider access to the WISC-V and WISC-V Integrated standardization data allows the reader to derive new WISC-V composite scores unavailable from other resources. Readers of this book are the first to receive access to these new composite scores, which are designed to be more appropriate for children with expressive language difficulties and motor impairments. The reader also receives exclusive access to four new WISC-V expanded index scores that provide broader measures of visual spatial ability, working memory, auditory working memory, and processing speed.
Significant advances in working memory research demand more comprehensive assessment of children with a broader range of abilities and limitations. The reader will learn how to perform a highly comprehensive assessment of working memory with the WISC-V and the WISC-V Integrated.
A digital interpretive tool automatically calculates the new composite scores, completes the relevant comparisons, and generates interpretive information for new comparisons to streamline the reporting process.
The WISC-V Integrated serves to expand and clarify WISC-V results by helping practitioners better understand a child's cognitive processes and the reasons for low or discrepant performance. This book helps practitioners get more out of the WISC-V and the WISC-V Integrated, with indispensable guidance and practical tools.
The WISC-V Integrated is an essential component of the WISC-V assessment process, and Essentials of WISC-V Integrated Assessment is the ideal guide for practitioners.
