Wide Range Achievement Test, Fifth Edition (WRAT5)

Measure reading, spelling and maths skills

The WRAT5 provides an accurate and easy-to-administer way to assess and monitor reading, spelling, and math skills, and helps identify possible learning disabilities. The assessment allows the standardisation benefit of being able to assess learners of all ages withthe same assessment, of screening individuals or small groups with some subtests to help identify those requiring a more comprehensive academic achievement evaluation.


Used in educational settings, the WRAT5 enables teachers and educational practitioners to:

  • Screen for students who may need comprehensive academic achievement evaluations, interventions or extra help

  • Identify possiblelearning disabilities


Only subtests that are of interest need to be administered, which can be useful in reducing administration time for the WRAT5.
