Description: The new Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities (WJ-IV-COG) is a battery that evaluates strengths and weaknesses among cognitive abilities. New tests and clusters are based on broad psychometric evidence and neuroscientific research. In its redesign, emphasis has been placed on the most important cognitive abilities. The WJ-IV-COG tests and clusters yield important diagnostic information, are useful in identifying exceptionalities and disabilities, and can be directly linked to interventions or accommodations. The core set of Tests (1-7) are used for calculating the General Intellectual Ability (GIA) score and that provide the basis for the intra-cognitive variation procedure.

The WJ-IV-COG includes 18 tests, 7 of which are new:

Standard Battery: Test 1: Oral Vocabulary; Test 2: Number Series; NEW Test 3: Verbal Attention; NEW Test 4: Letter-Pattern Matching; NEW Test 5: Phonological Processing; Test 6: Story Recall; NEW Test 7: Visualization; Test 8: General Information; Test 9: Concept Formation; Test 10: Numbers Reversed

Extended Battery: Test 11. Number-Pattern Matching; NEW Test 12: Nonword Repetition; Test 13: Visual-Auditory Learning; Test 14: Picture Recognition; Test 15: Analysis-Synthesis; Test 16: Object-Number Sequencing; Test 17: Pair Cancellation; Test 18: Memory for Words.

The new Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJ-IV) is composed of three instruments:  Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Achievement – (WJ-IV-ACH); Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Cognitive Abilities (WJ-IV-COG); & Woodcock-Johnson IV Tests of Oral Language (WJ-IV-OL). Together these instruments provide a comprehensive set of individually administered, independent, complementary, and norm-referenced tests for measuring intellectual abilities, academic achievement, and oral language abilities.
