The Wechsler Memory Scale – Fourth UK Edition (WMS–IVUK) is an individually administered assessment of memory and working memory in individuals ages 16–90. The WMS–IVUK also contains a brief evaluation of cognitive status. The WMS-IVUK is available in traditional paper-and-pencil format or digitally via Q-interactive.
The WMS–IVUK contains two batteries: an Adult battery for individuals aged 16–69, and a shorter Older Adult battery for use with individuals aged 65–90. This shorter battery was developed to decrease testing time, reduce examinee fatigue, and improve the psychometric functioning of the subtests in older adults.
The WMS-IVUK has been co-normed with the WAIS-IVUK. This pairing allows you to make realistic comparisons between performance on the two instruments and provides more complete information on memory function.
