The Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities are a comprehensive battery of standardised assessments designed to evaluate a wide range of cognitive abilities in individuals of all ages (2-90 years). The tests measure verbal and nonverbal abilities, including memory, reasoning, phonological awareness and problem-solving skills. They are often used to assess cognitive strengths and weaknesses, identify learning disabilities, and monitor progress in educational or therapeutic settings. They are considered reliable and valid measures of cognitive abilities and are widely used in both academic and clinical settings.
Examiners will enjoy administrative flexibility and interpretive clarity with the WJ IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities alone; however, combining administrations of the co-normed WJ IV Tests of Achievement and Tests of Oral Language will increase diagnostic capability and sensitivity.
With 18 different tests available, it contains the most extraordinary breadth of cognitive abilities of any standardised assessment suite. As a result, it will suit the needs of any healthcare professional working within the domain of psychology or a related profession.
The WJIV Test of Cognitive Abilities has unrivalled power yielding crucial diagnostic information and profiles of strengths and weaknesses, and is very useful in identifying exceptionalities and disabilities (dyslexia, dyscalculia, general learning disabilities etc.) and can be directly linked to interventions or accommodations. The WJIV Cog contains tests relating to the following cognitive domains: Non Verbal Abilities; Verbal Abilities; Working Memory; Processing Speed; Phonological Processing; Visual Processing, and Long Term Memory.
