Score of Reading Comprehension on WIAT III
By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D
My child scored a 160 on WIAT-III reading comprehension test she is
autistic and I know that she scored in the very superior range. Actually
how rare is that score of 160?
As far as I know, this is indeed the highest score and any score in the
superior range would be rare (around 0.1 percent based on a normal
curve). However, as you mentioned that she is autistic, a high
functioning one I believe, this may be quite possible. There is no
indication of the other scores, so it is hard to further elaborate, just
to simply answer your question on the rarity of the score. I think you
may need to see the tester to help understand the scores better and how
to further help her use this strength to the maximum. An autism
specialist would be able to help or refer you to someone who can guide
you further. Best wishes to you.
