A new era of assessment for Spanish speakers

Targeted intervention demands fair and effective diagnostic tools. Designed for use with Spanish-dominant students, the Batería IV Woodcock-Muñoz (Batería IV™) provides a psychometrically sound measure of cognitive abilities and academic skills in Spanish.

Scheduled for release in late 2018, Batería IV ensures every student is met with what they need, when they need it.

Updated norms and content that reflect current Spanish linguistic conventions and culture.

Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) framework-based to offer ease of use and flexibility for examiners.

Parallels with the WJ IV allow for a direct comparison of a student's skills in Spanish and English.
