Woodcock Johnson III Test of Achievement I have been offering since 2006. It offers a battery of 13 subtests in Reading, Math, Written Language & Academic Knowledge.
***Please note: This test has been discontinued. I only have a few more test booklets.
Cost is $125 Flat Rate per child
Woodcock Johnson IV updated version in 2014
Benefits of the new version:
New & updated material & questions
Offering 15 subtests as opposed to 13 on the WJIII
Includes Writing Samples for a more accurate assessment of a child’s writing ability
A more thorough & accurate Math Calculation subtest
Science, Social Studies and Humanities are now all separate tests with their own scoring
I also wanted to add my professional opinion since many of you frequently ask:I have now been offering the new WJIV test
since 2014 and have found it to be a more comprehensive test overall! It provides the Broad Achievement score which takes
a sampling of 3 scores from each the 3 core subjects of Reading, Math and Writing...for a total of 9 subtests.
The overall percentage and grade equivalence is therefore more accurate.

Cognitive Test of Abilities is a unique test that is not for everyone. It can be done separately on another testing date OR on an off year from the standardized test of achievement.
It tests the following:
Cognitive processing speed
Basic reasoning skills...ability to reason, form concepts and solve problems
Auditory processing...phonological processing
It also provides a General Intelligence Ability (correlates to an IQ...grade equivalence)
Recommended for families that need a deeper understanding of how a child is learning. It may be that there are struggles or that they are gifted....and you just need insight to how they are processing.
As always, I do not offer a diagnosis...just insight and perspective to their learning.
