The popular WISC-IV Compilation is the latest update of this popular educator’s guide to understanding test results and utilising that information in the classroom. The WISC-IV Compilation provides teachers with up-to-date assistance for planning remediation of deficits identified by WISC-IV test results and for writing individual education plans for the students.
The organisation of the Compilation reflects the current grouping of subtests into the four WISC-IV Indices: Verbal Comprehension, Perceptual Reasoning, Working Memory, and Processing Speed. Each chapter provides a brief synopsis of the purpose and the educational significance of the subtest. Within each subtest chapter, instructional materials are paired with numerous short-term and long-term objectives for ages 6 - 16.11 years.
The activities for each objective are clearly written in behavioural terms ("the student will be able to..."). An up-to-date list of the publishers of the instructional materials cited in each chapter is provided as well.
