WISC-V Sample Question #5 — Working Memory, Digit Span:

Parent, say to your child: “Let’s play a game. I’m going to say some numbers. When I am finished, I want you to repeat them exactly as I said them.” Then, recite the numbers below very clearly with exactly one number per second:

9 – 4 – 2 – 7 – 8 – 0 – 3

My Doon will be tested for perceptual learning disabilities…. wanted to see what the questions were like . Thank you


This is real fun. Can’t wait to give the test


Very helpful info, thank you for posting this


Thank you. We were trying to decide if we should have our bright child who exhibits test anxiety take this test. This made it easy to show her they were just puzzles. Thank you!


Best test we have taken ever. Cant tell how much it helped us.


Where are the answers?

Hi Karen,

The answers are at the very bottom of the post.





This looks fun.


My daughter need to go to the exam. want to know how it looks like . Thank


What age group would have the questions above? These seem to be for younger children. Surely they are too simple for a 10-12 year old and certainly a 13-16 year old? Can you please give examples of questions that a 10-12 year old might encounter?


I love testing mom




If a child has never experienced these type of tests, i.e. and sees a test paper for the first time is it possible that s/he might be taken aback and simply select random answers

Hi Mary –

Thank you for your comment.

This is a very real possibility and why our materials are developed to familiarize children with the concepts on these tests.

All the best,
