Test Tutor Publishing Reveals Child IQ Test ‘Best Kept’ Secrets
RESTON, Va., May 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Despite the tough economy, competition for private school admission continues to increase as many parents choose private schools to give their children a competitive edge. To fulfill this important niche, Test Tutor Publishing (AKA The Test Tutor) has created WPPSI-III(TM) and WISC-IV(TM) Test Preparation Kits to help children develop the skills needed for the IQ tests required for admission into the most selective private schools.
Since its launch in 2010, hundreds of parents have used The Test Tutor’s Test Preparation Kits to improve their child’s IQ test performance. Now, the company has released test preparation materials for the Woodcock-Johnson III(TM) Tests of Cognitive Ability. “This new book details how the Woodcock Johnson III(TM) is administered and scored, and provides plenty of sample questions to give children the practice they need,” says Test Tutor Publishing founder, Robin Bent.
Each year, thousands of elementary school children take an IQ test as part of the private school or gifted program admissions process. The most common include the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence(TM) (WPPSI), Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children(TM) (WISC), Woodcock Johnson Test of Cognitive Abilities(TM) (WJIII), and Stanford Binet(TM). These IQ tests are administered by licensed professionals, often cost hundreds of dollars, and can take from 30 minutes to 3 hours to complete. Parents find that practicing the required skills over a period of time can help their children become more confident in their ability to solve problems and apply critical thinking. “Providing children with an opportunity to practice the abilities tested — like pattern recognition, comprehension, and vocabulary will not only help to reduce anxiety on the day of the test, but will likely increase your child’s IQ test score,” Bent said.
“I was surprised at the overwhelming demand from parents in cities of all sizes,” observes Bent. “While several IQ test prep companies cater to the New York City market, Test Tutor Publishing’s aim is to meet the unique needs of parents in urban, suburban and even rural areas across the county.”
Experts agree that a child’s IQ score can vary widely depending on various environmental and circumstantial factors. “Our goal is to prepare children to test successfully and give parents an idea of what to expect,” Bent said.
The Woodcock Johnson III(TM), WPPSI-III(TM) and WISC-IV(TM) Test Preparation Kits are available for purchase on the Test Tutor Publishing website (http://www.the-test-tutor.com).
