The WJ-III Standard is a standardized, nationally norm-referenced achievement test and is individually administered by a trained examiner. (It is a revised and expanded version of the WJ-R.) The Normative Update was published in 2007, which included over 8,000 individuals ages 2-90 years old, including undergraduate and graduate students. The test is oral in format and almost conversational in tone. I strive to keep the testing experience casual and non-intimidating for your child. The WJ-III Standard has 5 subtests and takes 60-90 minutes to administer, but the exam is not timed. The WJ-III Extended or Extended Plus takes 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours to administer. The Extended/Extended Plus tests have 9 or 10 subtests, depending on whether you wish to add the Academic Knowledge section, with three of the sections timed to measure fluency in Reading, Math, & Writing. The WJ-III NU ACH, in any version, can be administered year round and will assess K-Graduate grade level (>18.0) equivalency. Testing Fees
The Peabody is a standardized, nationally norm-referenced achievement test. The Normative Update was published in 1998. It is individually administered by a trained examiner, with assessment completed in the following content areas: General Information, Reading Recognition, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, and Spelling (see below). The subtests and composite scores are calculated immediately with derived scores indicating grade level equivalents and percentile ranking. The test is oral in format and almost conversational in tone. I strive to keep the test experience casual and non-intimidating for your child. It takes 60-90 minutes to administer the test, but the exam is not timed. The Peabody can be administered year round and will assess K-12 grade levels. Testing Fees
