GDC just finished the WPPSI-IV trial, which is the newest version of the preschool IQ test. Results aren't back from it yet, but they're expected around July, and the test will be available for purchase in the Fall.
Well...! GDC announced today that they'll be participating in another trial soon for the WISC-V!! (This is the elementary version.) No details on when that will be, but my own suspicion is that it'll be Fall (after the WPPSI release) or Spring (same timeline as the WPPSI). I assume all the same parameters will be in place... highly gifted (or higher) previous testing, gifted siblings, etc.
I'm hoping the trial happens in Spring, because you cannot have tested during the previous 12 months. Ben was tested on WISC-IV in January, so he wouldn't be allowed into the trial unless it's done in Feb+. We're wanting to test him again, anyway, because now we know why his score was so much lower than anyone had expected, and we can help him with the disabilites. (BTW... we just got neuropsych results back... Asperger's + ADD, not ADHD. Along with visual, auditory, and motor delays, he had a very difficult time with the WISC test, even though he barely missed the DYS cutoff for profoundly gifted, and did great on the WJ-III.)
Anyway... just wanted to share. With so many testing disabilites, it's unlikely they'd choose Ben for another test (unless they're looking for things like that), but I'm still excited by the possibility of a re-test without having to fork over an arm & leg to pay for it!
