Practice Test Questions for Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children® IV (WISC®-IV Test)
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-IV test), is an IQ test that is administered to children ages 6 and up. No writing or reading ability is needed of the child that is taking the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children. Once it has been completed, the WISC test produces an IQ score.
Like other IQ Tests, the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children was designed to assess the child’s skills and abilities, rather than test for grade-level subject knowledge. The WISC-IV test is administered by a trained psychologist in a one-on-one setting with the child. The time it takes to complete the test varies because a good test proctor will usually establish a rapport with the child before they start asking questions from the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children. Depending on the age of the child taking the WISC exam, it’s common for the test to take 2-3 hours and in some cases it takes more than one session.
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – WISC-IV test contains 16 subsets within the exam. Within each of these subtests the questions get more and more difficult as the child progresses through the sections. The format of the questions on the Wechsler Intelligence test are often subject to change. A child’s score is determined by how far they get within each subtest before getting three in a row wrong. Psychologists administering the test take the scores from the individual subtests and combine them to get the child’s IQ.
The 16 subtests of the the Wechsler Test:
- Block Design
- Digit Span
- Picture Concepts
- Letter-Number Sequencing
- Matrix Reasoning
- Symbol Search
- Picture Completion
- Word Reasoning
- Perceptual Reasoning Index

In the 1st question the picture on the right bottom is hard to define. Is that a pile of sweaters or a wallet?, and the correct answer is that a trunk of a coffin? Based on the answer I am to assume it is a pile of sweaters and a trunk, but I thought the sweaters was a wallet, so if I had been taking this test, (I am an adult) I would have chosen the purse. I really hope that the real test does not have difficult pictures to define, because in that case the test score may be inadequate, because of the difficult visible definition of the items. The milk and refrigerator was a more obvious sample. Also I was informed that this test averages about 5-6 hours of time for a child, so how can that big of a test be sampled with only 3 questions?
I apologize for adding to my message but most children have never used or seen a glass bottle of milk in the USA, and trunks are not all that commonly used anymore too. For the example of a record and a record player, paper and a typewriter these items are obsolete in a child’s mind. I also hope that these picture questions have been updated to use more current items that children of this time period understand.
would you send me the subtest, please?
Best I can tell on the newly released IPad Air with retina display, the fuzzy 4th block in question #1 appears to be a stack of pants or jeans. If the bottle of milk is stored in the refrigerator, would not the pants be stored in the trunk? More so, milk is removed from the refrigerator, pants are removed from the trunk. How does the purse factor in? Just curious?
Oh, i also picked the purse because i thought the sweaters were money. ( Using a macbook) And I thought the trunk was a pirate treasure chest. So……
