The WRIT provides a general measure of intelligence with user-friendly materials that make it easy to learn to administer.

The WRIT is a highly reliable assessment of cognitive abilities that can be used with individuals ages 4 to 85 years. Taking less than 30 minutes to administer, the WRIT assesses both verbal and nonverbal abilities, yielding a Verbal IQ and a Visual IQ, which generate a combined General IQ.

Features and Benefits:

  • Fast and reliable. Brief administration times average less than 30 minutes—yet the WRIT is as reliable as many lengthier measures.
  • Covers an extended age range. Only one set of materials is needed to assess preschool children as young as 4 years to adults age 85 years.
  • Documents ability levels. Provides an estimate of cognitive ability for educational, psychological or vocational rehabilitation evaluations.
  • Helps to identify exceptionalities. The WRIT can help identify learning disabilities, giftedness, and neuropsychological impairments.
  • Easy to learn to administer. The format is familiar because the conceptual roots of the WRIT are related to a hierarchical model of ability familiar to psychologists trained in individual testing.
  • Colourful, attractive, and engaging. Subtests encourage participation by individuals of all ages.

Test structure:

– Four subtests address specific abilities:

  • Verbal scale (crystallised): Vocabulary and Verbal Analogies subtests
  • Visual scale (fluid): Matrices and Diamonds subtests

Technical information:

Standardised on 2,285 individuals in the US, the WRIT produces IQs that are highly correlated with those from traditional and much lengthier cognitive measures, including the WISC®-III (.90) and the WAIS®-III (.91). The WRIT was co-normed with the WRAT3, allowing for sound and efficient determination of an intelligence/achievement discrepancy.
