Wechsler Individual Achievement Test – Second UK Edition (WIAT® - II UK)

D. Wechsler

The WIAT-II provides reliable assessment of reading, language and numerical attainment in one test. An expanded age range, more comprehensive items, and streamlined test materials are just a few of the many benefits of the new Wechsler Individual Achievement Test® - Second UK Edition (WIAT® - II).

WIAT – II is a rich, reliable source of information about an individual’s achievement skills and it allows you to assess problemsolving abilities by evaluating the process as well as the product. The WAIT – II is unique in that it is directly linked to the WISC IV and so provides excellent comparisons of achievement and ability.

There are 3 measures of reading

  • Word Reading
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Pseudo-Word Decoding

There are 2 measures of numerical attainment

  • Numerical Operations
  • Mathematical Reasoning

There are 2 measures of written language attainment

  • Spelling
  • Written Expression

There are 2 measures of oral language attainment

  • Listening Comprehension
  • Oral Expression

In order to better assess both low and high-functioning individuals, WIAT-II includes more comprehensive items that provide a lower floor and a higher ceiling. With WIAT-II™ you can choose the subtests you need to administer, engage examinees with interesting tasks that are instructionally relevant, and develop plans with detailed skills analysis information.

WIAT – II allows you to go beyond the correctness of a response and begin to examine how the individual solves problems and employs strategies and how this performance matches curricular expectations.

Using the WIAT-II with adult examinees

The WIAT-II was standardised on children aged 4 years to 16 years 11months in the UK. However, adult norms form the US study are available from 17 to 85 years by simply purchasing the adult scoring and normative supplement for use with your existing materials.

WIAT-II for Teachers

The WIAT-IIUK-T is the most comprehensive UK-normed assessment package designed for access arrangements, statementing and general literacy levels.

The WIAT-IIUK-T is the only test for specialist teachers currently offering subtests in the three key areas of reading:

  • untimed single word accuracy
  • reading comprehension
  • reading speed.

It provides the following:

  • Single Word Reading - includes letter identification, phonological awareness, letter-sound awareness, accuracy and automaticity of word recognition
  • Reading Comprehension - stories and sentences include literal, inferential and lexical comprehension, oral reading accuracy and fluency and word recognition in context
  • Reading Speed - for 6 to 16 years 11 months. Words per minute (WPM) can also be recorded for the full age range
  • Reading Rate - this is calculated from the Reading Comprehension subtest. The quartile scores identify the slow and accurate, slow and inaccurate, fast and accurate and fast and inaccurate reader 
  • Single Word Spelling - includes letter-sound correspondence for vowels, consonants and consonant blends, regular and irregular words, contradictions and high-frequency homonyms.

In addition to a full set of US norms for the adult population, WIAT-IIUK-T provides up-to-date UK norms for children and adolescents. Based on 800 children, across all geographic regions, the data accurately represents the current UK population aged 4 to 16 years 11 months according to the 2001 UK census data.

The WIAT-IIUK-T is available to Learning Support Educators and Registered Counsellors
