What is the Woodcock Johnson Test of Achievement?

Thursday, June 28, 2012 by Mary Froneberger

The Woodcock Johnson Tests of Achievement- Third Edition (WJ-III) is a widely used individualized academic achievement measurement. It includes assessments of basic reading, reading comprehension, written expression, math calculation and math reasoning. The WJ-III is often administered by public schools to determine eligibility for special education. It is also used in clinical settings to determine the presence of a learning disability such as dyslexia. The measurement is helpful in clinical settings when a clincian is trying to determine the presence of ADHD. Moreover, the WJ-III is often used to document annual progress for home-schooled students.

In addition to several other instruments, this standardized testing tool is a regular part of the comprehensive assessments offered by our team of child psychologists and educators at Child and Family Development in Charlotte.
