WPPSI Test – Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence – Third Edition
Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI test) – Third Edition can be used in children from 2.6 to 7.3 years of age. The WPPSI test measures intellectual abilities in young children. There is a new shorter version of the WPPSI-III that is fun for the child and more of taking the WPPSI test in a game format.
The WPPSI test (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence) covers 14 subsets:
- Block Design
- Matrix Reasoning
- Picture Concepts
- Symbol Search
- Word Reasoning
- Picture Completion
- Receptive Vocabulary
- Object Assembly
- Picture Naming
The 14 subsets are one of three types:
- Core: required for the computation of the Verbal, Performance, and Full Scale IQ
- Supplemental: provide additional information about cognitive abilities
- Optional: provide additional information about cognitive functioning
The strengths of the WPPSI test for young children is they are colorful and the test keeps the attention span of the child since they find the WPPSI interesting. Subtests of the WPPSI-III s offer a variety samples and often second chances to assure the child performs best during the test or her abilities. The WPPSI test scores allow partial credit. The WPPSI is not without drawbacks. When testing young children the WPPSI test results can vary dramatically every few months since IQ can increase dramatically when the child is young.

kindly tell me how to score in WPPSI-III
my daughter is in the first grade and she plan to take gift and talent test in juanary. Does she need to do the WPPSI practice?
Can some one tell me how to find other subsets other than picture concepts on this site. I go to the questions and games but seem to get the same questions. I thought I would be able to review other areas with my monthly package. Please assist.
My son is going to Pre-Kindergarten this September and I will apply for private school this September. What tests should I use for his preparation?
