Subject: PLs help: Tests seem to show something different
My daughter Ava (6yr 10mo.1 grade) has received a number of tests. In pre-school she had trouble with learning her alphabet and memorizing sequential information. Now she is testing slightly below grade level in reading (according to the DRA assessments used in our county). It is evident she has trouble reading and has not other trouble in math, science, history ect.
To me these test show inconsistency and the WISC test results appear to be the most troubling and unexpected.
Here are the results:
Woodcock Johnson III (March 2009)
Comprehensive Knowledge - High Average Ability 117
Long Term Retrieval - Low Average 83
Visual Spatial Thinking - Superior 121
Auditory Processing - Average 97
Fluid Reasoning - Average 106
Processing Speed - Average 98
Short Term Memory - Average 83
Phonemic Awareness - Average 111
Working Memory - Average 90
Broad Attn: Avg 89
Cognitive Fluency - Avg 107
Executive Processing - Avg 105
Associative Memory - Below Avg 79
Then there is the WISC IV test. This was given in Nov 09 and the school Ed.S noted that there was a "rare discrepancy between two of her composite scores. As a result her FSIQ may not reflect her potential." these test seem off in Verbal Comprehension Index (VCI) and Perceptual Reasoning Index (PCI) and consistent in Working Memory Index (WMI) and Processing Speed Index (PSI) to the Woodcock Johnson.
