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

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!

Andrea says:

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?
