Overview of Wechsler Individual Achievement Test
Fourth Edition (WIAT-4)

This half-day session covers the fourth edition of the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, a comprehensive measure of oral language, reading, written expression, and mathematics (WIAT-4: 2020). The WIAT-4 offers several new subtests including Phonological Awareness, Orthographic Choice, and Orthographic Fluency, and several new composites including Phonological Awareness and Orthographic Awareness. Like its predecessor, the WIAT-III, the WIAT-4 provides quantitative information in the achievement areas specified by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (2004) as well as qualitative information for specific subtests. Subtest-level analysis and other skills analyses help professionals understand why a student is struggling with specific skills, and goal statements provide recommendations for intervention.

As a result of this presentation, participants will:
  • List subtests and composites new to WIAT-4.
  • Describe administration and scoring of selected WIAT-4 subtests.
  • Describe how models of reading acquisition informed development of WIAT-4 reading subtests.
  • Show how to use WIAT-4 data to identify the nature of a student’s reading difficulties.
