What is the WISC-V?

The WISC-V is the IQ test used for 6 to 16-year-old children and adolescents. It is the IQ test with the highest scientific validity. It gives a complete map of the child or adolescent's cognitive and intellectual functioning. The WISC-V is also used to determine if they are intellectually gifted (for this, personality tests are often needed too).
