The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale | Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) is the most advanced adult measure of cognitive ability, based on recent research in cognitive neuroscience and the theories and work of Dr David Wechsler.
The WAIS-IV is worldwide one of the most popular assessments of cognitive functioning. It can provide rich information on examinees' cognitive abilities and related constructs. It is a complex test and examiners should ensure that they are skilled in all aspects of the administration, scoring, and interpretation. The aim of this programme is not to turn you into an instant specialist, but rather to provide you with a broad overview of the history, administration, and scoring of this assessment. A case study is used to provide guidance in terms of the interpretation of profiles.
* Please note that this is not a certification programme. You do not have to complete the training in order to use the instrument. However, we strongly advise professionals to be upskilled in any psychometric assessment prior to application.
