Author: Nancy Mather & Barbara J. Wendling

Description: The new Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Achievement – (WJ-IV-ACH) includes 20 tests for measuring four broad academic domains: reading, written language, mathematics, and academic knowledge. A completely new configuration, with new tests and clusters, supports a broad range of diagnostic assessment needs for a wide variety of professionals to determine academic strengths and weaknesses. A new comparison of achievement scores to academic knowledge can provide additional information to help determine if a more comprehensive evaluation should be considered. Eleven of the most frequently used achievement tests are included in the Standard Battery, which has three parallel forms. There is a single form of the Extended Battery containing nine additional diagnostic measures that can be used with any form of the Standard Battery.

There are three Standard Battery forms of the WJ IV Tests of Achievement (Form A, Form B, and Form C) – the PRC has Form A.
