WRAT-5: Overview and Applications (The full webinar can be found in the description!)
Several new features have been added to the WRAT4. In addition to updated norms, the WRAT4 contains an entirely new measure of reading achievement--Sentence Comprehension--added to enhance the scope of the content measured and to meet a need often expressed by users of previous editions for a measure of reading comprehension.
(WRAT4) Wide Range Achievement Test 4
The interpretation of WRAT4 scores has been enhanced by the addition of grade-based norms, thereby increasing the usefulness of the test in grades K The age-based norms also have been extended from age 75 in the third edition to age 94 so that the basic literacy skills of older adults could be assessed. Description of the WRAT4 The WRAT4 is a norm-referenced test that measures the basic academic skills of word reading, sentence comprehension, spelling, and math computation.
It was standardized on a representative national sample of over 3, individuals ranging in age from years. Alternate forms, designated the Blue Form and the Green Form, were developed and equated during standardization by use of a common-person research design.

Derived scores were developed for both age- and grade-referenced groups. Standard scores, percentile ranks, stanines, normal curve equivalents, grade equivalents, and Rasch ability scaled scores are provided.
The Blue Form and the Green Form can be used interchangeably with comparable results, thus permitting retesting within short periods of time without the potential practice effects that may occur from repeating the same items.
The alternate forms also can be administered together i. For those interested in a more qualitative assessment of academic skills, the Combined Form provides an additional opportunity for performance observance.

The WRAT4 includes the following four subtests: Word Reading measures letter and word decoding through letter identification and word recognition. Sentence Comprehension measures an individual's ability to gain meaning from words and to comprehend ideas and information contained in sentences through the use of a modified cloze technique.
Spelling measures an individual's ability to encode sounds into written form through the use of a dictated spelling format containing both letters and words. Math Computation measures an individual's ability to perform basic mathematics computations through counting, identifying numbers, solving simple oral problems, and calculating written mathematics problems.
In addition to providing derived scores and interpretive information for the subtests, the WRAT4 also yields a Reading Composite score, obtained by combining the Word Reading and Sentence Comprehension standard scores.
This is the order in which the subtests were administered during standardization; however, the subtests may be administered in any order, with one exception.

The Word Reading subtest should be administered before the Sentence Comprehension subtest because an individual's scores on the Word Reading [Part 2] of the Word Reading subtest can be used as a routing test to determine the appropriate starting item on Sentence Comprehension, thereby shortening the time required.
In addition, the Word Reading score also determines whether or not the Sentence Comprehension subtest should be administered at all. Administration Time Administration time varies depending upon the age, skill, and behavioral style of the individual being tested. For children ages 8 years and older and adults, the administration time is between minutes. For younger children ages years the administration time is between minutes.
Small-Group Administration Although the WRAT4 will most often be administered individually, some of the subtests or sections of subtests may be administered to small groups.

The Spelling and Math Computation sections of the respective subtests may be administered to small groups. It is recommended that small groups be limited to no more than 5 participants.
Uses of the WRAT4 The WRAT4 is intended for use by those professionals who need a quick, simple, psychometrically sound assessment of important fundamental academic skills. Such measures are valuable in initial evaluations or individuals referred for learning, behavioral, or vocational difficulties.
The results of the WRAT4 by themselves are not intended to provide formal identification of learning or cognitive disorders. Use of the WRAT4 results together with a broad array of comprehensive information such as additional assessment and psychometric data, background history, behavioral observations, and more formal assessments of behavioral functioning will assist in the identification and diagnosis of such disorders.
Beginning with an historical overview, Chapter 1 contains a description of the revised test battery, including recommended uses of the WRAT4.
Chapter 2 provides a description of the materials needed to administer the test, user qualifications, and the general and specific instructions needed to administer and score the WRAT4 subtests.
Chapter 3 contains an explanation of the derived scores offered for test interpretation along with recommended interpretive guidelines. Chapter 4 provides the pertinent background information about the development and standardization of the WRAT4. Chapter 5 contains extensive technical data summarizing various aspects of reliability and validity.
The appendixes contain additional scoring information for the Sentence Comprehension and Math Computation subtests and the age-based and grade-based normative tables for the Blue, Green, and Combined forms. Conversion tables are also provided for percentile ranks, normal curve equivalents, stanines, grade equivalents, Rasch ability scaled scores, statistical significance of standard score difference tables, and prevalence of standard score difference tables.
