Essentials of WPPSI-IV Assessment

Exploit the full potential of the WPPSI-IV with analysis from multiple perspectives Essentials of WPPSI-IV Assessment is a comprehensive guide to administering, scoring, and interpreting the latest edition of the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence, which represents a major revision of the prior edition. Step-by-step guidelines walk readers through the process, and new Behind the Scenes boxes provide unprecedented insight into the new subtests and the test development process. The book highlights common errors and complex aspects so readers can avoid them, and includes illustrative case studies based on data collected during the scale's standardization to assist in proper administration and interpretation. The companion CD provides software that automates score interpretation, and supplies users with tools to enhance WPPSI-IV administration and report writing. Used to evaluate for learning or intellectual disabilities, developmental or language delays, or gifted and talented classification, the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence is the most widely used assessment of intelligence for young children. Essentials of WPPSI-IV Assessment applies an interpretive approach that allows flexibility in response to the real constraints and challenges inherent in working with children, describing performance in both normative and interpersonal contexts to facilitate interpretive case formulations from multiple theoretical and clinical perspectives. Topics include: WPPSI-IV administration and clinical applications Scoring, score analysis, and interpretation Strengths and weaknesses of the WPPSI-IV Differences across demographic groups The book and accompanying CD also provide alternatives for situations in which published comparison scores may not be available or applicable to a particular child, and supplies composite scores aimed at facilitating WPPSI-IV interpretation from a variety of theoretical approaches. Those who employ the WPPSI-IV must have a thorough grasp of the full potential of the tool, and Essentials of WPPSI-IV Assessment contains the insight and information that allow for deeper understanding.
