The WMS-IV UK has had significant changes to the overall test structure. Based on feedback from customers, we are introducing four new subtests and modifying three existing subtests.
Based on “N-Back Paradigm”, Spatial Addition requires minimal motor function as the client must:
A “Visual analog to Digit Span”, clients are asked to remember the design and the left to right sequence of the design. The clients are then asked to select the correct design from foils and choose them in the correct sequence.
Containing four items of increasing difficulty, Design Memory evaluates immediate and delayed recall as well as delayed recognition. It does not include drawing and reduces the opportunity to guess the correct response. You can obtain scores for spatial, details, and correct content in the correct location as well as contrast scores for spatial versus detail, immediate versus delayed, and recognition versus delayed.
This new screener can be used to quickly evaluate significant cognitive impairment. You can assess:
Also available are classification tables that translate total scores into Average, Low, Moderately low, and Very low.
3 subtests retained with modifications:
Although the stories remain the same as seen in WMS-III UK for ages 16-69 years old, the repetition trial for Story B has been dropped to increase the consistency with previous editions. For the older age range of 65-90 years old, a new story was developed with content more relevant. The story is shorter and repeated once to enable adequate floor through age 90. You can obtain immediate versus delay and recognition versus delay contrast scores.
Verbal Paired Associates
It now includes a combination of difficult and easy items. For the younger age group (16-69 years) there are 14 items of which 10 are hard. For the older age group (65-90 years), there are 10 items of which six are hard. Delayed Free Recall Trial has been added while Recognition Trial has increased its level of difficulty. You can obtain immediate versus delay and recognition versus delay contrast scores.
While following the same structure and format as seen in WMS-III UK, there have been a few changes to the subtest. Recognition Trial has been shortened and scoring has been improved. Based on Munro Cullum’s research, scoring is easier and faster than previously experienced and emphasizes recall with less focus on drawing accuracy. You can obtain immediate versus delay and recognition versus delay contrast scores.
8 subtests were eliminated: Information & Orientation Spatial Span Mental Control Faces Digit Span Family Pictures Letter Number Word List (CVLT-II can be entered into Index)
Scores are now derived for Older Adult Battery (65–90) and Adult Battery (16–69). Index scores include: Auditory Memory, Visual Memory, Visual Working Memory, Immediate Memory, and Delayed Memory. New contrast scores provide information on clinical significance of changes in scores across subtests or indexes.
The following scoring information and samples are available for WMS-IV:
