The WRAT5 is a quick and reliable assessment of these academic skills, with two independent and parallel forms (Blue ands Green) that can be used for progress monitoring.

The WRAT-5 represents a substantial revision of WRAT-4 including updated norms, revised subtests with new items and improved content coverage, and simplified administration about its development and techniques characteristics.  Normative Tables are provided in a separate Norms Book.

The WRAT-5 provides derived scores and interpretive information for four subtests:

  • Word Reading measures untimed letter identification and word recognition. The examinee reads aloud a list of letters/words
  • Sentence Comprehension measures the ability to identify the meaning of words and to comprehend the ideas and information in a sentence using untimed modified cloze procedure. Each item requires the examinee to read (aloud or silently) a sentence with a missing word, and then say the word that best completes the sentence
  • Spelling measures an individual’s ability to write letters and words from dictation without a time limit
  • Math Computation measures an individual’s ability to county, identify numbers, solve simple oral math problems, and calculate written math problems with a time limit. Problems are presented in a range of domains including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and advanced operations
