This session will familiarize participants with The Woodcock-Johnson® IV (WJ IV) edition of one of the most widely used batteries of individually-administered psycho-educational tests. Based on the evolution of Cattell–Horn–Carroll (CHC) theory, new tests and interpretive clusters place emphasis on the most important and diagnostically useful measures of academic achievement, oral language, and cognitive abilities. Participants will be supported in interpreting the evaluation of strengths and weaknesses within and among measures of academic performance, oral language competence, and cognitive abilities. Participants will:  

  • learn how the WJ IV is organized into three independent batteries  
  • gain knowledge about the revision goals of the WJ IV  
  • learn the new features of the WJ IV ACH  
  • learn general and specific test administration guidelines  
  • practice scoring of specific tests  
  • develop their knowledge about the levels of information and scores available  
  • learn the purpose of the variation and comparison procedures available  
  • develop their ability to interpret the intra-achievement variations and the academic knowledge/achievement comparison
  • gain knowledge about the online scoring program
