Frequently Asked Question:

Why is there no space for raw scores on the summary page?

Answer:

This was discussed in the preliminary design phase of the protocol. It was decided that placing an area for raw scores on the summary page would increase the likelihood that the previous WIAT procedure, summing the raw scores from each of the contributing subtests to calculate the composite score, would be followed rather than the new WIAT-II procedure, summing the standard scores of the subtests to calculate the composite scores.

The raw scores appear on the Total Raw Score Conversion Worksheet. The record form booklet is designed in such a way that the back page opens so as to present the Total Raw Score Conversion Worksheet beside the Summary Report page. Then, it is a simple step to convert raw scores to grade or age scaled scores.
