WASI Sample Question # 1- Similarities:
Ask your child each question. There are no pictures to show for this section. The subtest gets progressively harder and is discontinued after the child misses 4 questions in a row.
WASI Sample Question # 2- Matrix Reasoning (Reasoning By Analogy):
Look at the figures on top. Thy go together in some way. Choose a figure from the answer row that goes with the figure(s) on the bottom the same way the figures on top go together.
WASI Sample Question # 3- Block Design (Pattern Tiles):
Sit next to your child. With 2 and 3 tile designs, build the design and ask your child to copy (neatly) what you made. For designs that use 4 or more tiles, show your child the image on the computer. Say, “Can you copy this design? Go as fast as you can.”
WASI Sample Question # 4- Vocabulary:

3.) Third, without using visual prompts ask your child to define what these items are.
