My daughter is a very bright 4yr old who passed her regular kindergarten entrance exam however due to her birthday they r doing a woodwork test.
Although some of the subtests of the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities (Third Edition) can be combined to get an IQ, it’s not considered a first choice for that purpose. It’s primarily used as a test of how a child processes different kinds of information or performs on tasks measuring certain narrow cognitive skills.
Is there anywhere a school with limited can buy used testing materials like the Woodcock-Johnson (even if it is an older edition)?
My son and niece are both going to be tested for PRE-K 4. We will have our test date by November 10, the test dates will be in January and February of 2013. Is there a study schedule with this program? Their teacher at daycare is also willing to use what ever prep I choose, so not only will they have it every day but also at home.
What is recommended? They will be taking the Woodcock Johnson III Test of Achievement, Brief Achievement-Three Test. Letter Word Identification, Applied Problems, and Spelling/English.
