Education Resource Bureau Test

NYC kids gear up for the DOE test.

In the mid-1990s, New York City children typically took the WPPSI test, also known as the WPPSI ERB and the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence Test, in order to achieve admittance to private schools, including everything from private preschool programs to standard private, primary schools. Parents usually got incredibly worried as the date of the WPPSI test approached. The reason for this worry was primarily concern for how the test results could potentially impact their child’s educational opportunities, including whether or not they would be admitted to a good school of the parents’ choosing.

The WPPSI test is administered by the Education Resource Bureau, which is the reason it is sometimes called the WPPSI ERB, and continues to be an IQ assessment measure utilized by many private and public schools across the nation today.
