Cognitive Processing & Intellectual Measures Tests

These tests are all broken down into subtests that measure different areas of cognitive processing that are combined to give what are often referred to as index scores. Full-Scale Intelligence Score (FSIQ) is generated from a combination of subtests that are also included in the index scores. One of the following comprehensive measures below will be administered.

An individually administered test that can be administered to children from age 2 to adults in their 90s. The WJ-IV COG measures 7 areas of cognitive processing and yields a General Intellectual Ability Index (GIA) score based on 7 subtests. The WJ-IV measures Verbal Comprehension, Fluid Reasoning, Visual Processing, Long-term Retrieval, Auditory Processing, Short-term Working Memory, and Cognitive Processing Speed.
