The Woodcock-Johnson IV:
A Comprehensive, Contemporary Assessment System
Riverside InsightsTM is pleased to offer the Fourth Edition of the trusted, groundbreaking leader in individually administered assessments: Woodcock-Johnson® (WJ IVTM).

Why Test with WJ IV?
· A single, comprehensive testing suite with solutions for early childhood through adult and senior testing.
· Updated and expanded interpretive model includes Gf-Gc Composite for comparison to measures of academic achievement, cognitive processing and oral language.
· New domain-specific scholastic aptitude clusters that allow for efficient and valid predictions of academic achievement.
WJ IV offers the ease of use and flexibility that examiners need to accurately evaluate learning problems for children and adults in a way that no other assessment solution can.

"The WJ IV...allows practitioners to
complete thorough evaluations using the same family of instruments. When I administer a battery that is less comprehensive, I complement my evaluations and test my hypotheses
with the WJ IV."
--Erick Lopez, Bilingual Educational Diagnostician/ Certified Specialist in Psychometry for Galena Park ISD
The Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJ IV) system is structured to create comprehensive cognitive, achievement, and oral language batteries that can be used in conjunction with one another or as stand alone batteries. New tests and clusters in WJ IV are engineered to provide the most diagnostically useful interpretations. WJ IV consists of three independent and co-normed batteries can be used independently or in any combination:
· WJ IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities · WJ IV Tests of Achievement · WJ IV Tests of Oral Language

The Woodcock-Johnson IV
Tests of Achievement

The WJ IV Tests of Achievement are ideal for accurately screening, diagnosing, and monitoring progress in reading, writing, and mathematics achievement areas. The Standard battery is available in three forms (A, B, C) with parallel content, providing the means to monitor progress two to three times per year once a proficiency level is established and interventions are implemented with a student. The parallel forms also provide flexibility to examiners who wish to alternate the three forms to reduce examinees' familiarity with test content.
Regardless of the form chosen, examiners will receive 11 tests in the standard battery. Using the standard battery provides a broad set of scores, while the extended battery allows for more in-depth diagnostic assessment of specific strengths and weaknesses.
The Achievement Battery offers examiners the option to only administer the specific tests relevant to any referral questions. As a result, an examiner seldom needs to administer all of the tests or complete all of the interpretive options for a single person.

Standard Battery B
Extended Battery

Standard Battery C

Users can also administer Tests 1­3 of any form to generate a Brief Achievement cluster.
Depending on the purpose of the assessment, an examiner can use any standard battery alone or in conjunction with the single-form extended battery.

Use the Cognitive Battery to:
· Pinpoint cognitive correlates of learning problems
· Measure aspects of seven different broad CHC abilities
· Capture the GIA, BIA and Gf-Gc composites, along with other narrow ability clusters.



The Woodcock-Johnson IV
Tests of Cognitive Abilities
Supporting a new era of CHC theory, the WJ IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities contain the greatest breadth of cognitive abilities of any standardized body of tests. New tests and clusters have been designed to place emphasis on the most useful measures for identifying individuals' patterns of strengths and weaknesses through seven different broad CHC abilities. The WJ IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities also offer a new Gf-Gc Composite for comparison with other cognitive abilities, oral language, and achievement. Understanding relative strengths and weaknesses in comparison to the Gf-Gc Composite can lead to individualized instruction designed to target identified learning needs. Plus, all-new working memory, perceptual speed, and phonological processing measures help pinpoint cognitive correlates of learning problems, while a new easy-to-use, intracognitive variation procedure allows documentation of cognitive strengths and weaknesses. 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.

Use the Oral Language to:
· Measure four aspects of oral language in English and Spanish
· Compare English to Spanish oral language ability
· Provide language-related insights into observed learning problems



The Woodcock-Johnson IV
Tests of Oral Language
The WJ IV Tests of Oral Language can be used to determine and describe an individual's strengths and weaknesses with regard to expressive and receptive language. The 12-test battery includes nine English tests and three Spanish tests, all of which are included in a single easel. Depending on the purpose and extent of the assessment, an examiner can use any of these tests independently or in conjunction with the WJ IV Cognitive and/or Achievement Batteries. Several of the battery's tests were derived from material in the WJ III® Tests of Achievement and Tests of Cognitive Abilities, however, a unique feature of the WJ IV Tests of Oral Language is the provision of three parallel tests in Spanish (Vocabulario sobre dibujos--Picture Vocabulary, Comprensión Oral-- Oral Comprehension, and Comprensión de indicaciones--Understanding Directions). Although the format is the same as the English versions, the tests have different items in Spanish. When appropriate, these tests can be administered to help determine an individual's language abilities and to compare an individual's proficiency on English and Spanish language tasks through the Comparative Language Index (CLI). Dual administration may be helpful in classifying the individual's language proficiency as is frequently required in bilingual or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) programs. Additionally, teachers can gain a better understanding of the individual's language abilities in order to make more informed educational placement and instructional decisions.
