Recommended tests:


• Aptitude
• Wechsler Adult Intelligence Test-Revised (Wais-r) WAIS III
• Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-educational Battery-Revised: Test of Cognitive Ability
• Kaufman Adolescent and Adult Intelligence Test
• Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale (4th ed.)
• Academic Achievement
• Scholastic Abilities Test for Adults
• Stanford Test of Academic Skills
• Woodcock Johnson Psycho-educational Battery-Revised: Test of Achievement
• Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT)

 

Or specific achievement test such as:


• Nelson-Denny Reading Skills Test
