Insights for psychologists who administer the WISC-V
February 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
NOTE: This session is for psychologists only; a parent Q&A with Dr. Rogers on Wednesday, February 19 is available at this link.
We are very excited to welcome Professor Karen Rogers, Ph.D. from The University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis to lead an insightful discussion on interpreting the Ancillary Index Scores on the WISC-V: The Quantitative Reasoning Index (QRI); Auditory Working Memory Index (AWMI); Nonverbal Index (NVI); General Ability Index (GAI); and the Cognitive Proficiency Index (CPI) for the identification of intellectual giftedness.
The National Association of Gifted Children (NAGC) recommends that examiners use available WISC-V expanded and ancillary index scores that emphasize reasoning to document giftedness, clarify complex patterns of strengths and weaknesses for twice exceptional children, and ensure that gifted programs are accessible to children with disabilities.
Dr. Rogers is Professor of Gifted Studies in the Special Education & Gifted Education Department at the College of Education, Leadership, and Counseling at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis. She is a Professorial Fellow at the University of Wollongong and an Honorary Professor at the University of New South Wales in Australia. She is past president of CEC-TAG, past SIG AERA chair for the Giftedness, Creativity, and Talent special interest group, and has been on the Board of Directors for NAGC. She is author of five books, with four more forthcoming, including Re-forming Gifted Education. She is a manuscript reviewer for all the major journals in gifted education (U.S. and Australia) and served a term as Associate Editor for the Journal for Advanced Academics. She has expertise in research-based gifted practices via research syntheses of the research in the field and has additional interests in arts education, cognitive processing, parenting, creativity, gifted program development and evaluation, and twice exceptional education.
We look forward to meeting you soon. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. Continental breakfast will be served. Optional tours of our school will be offered from 10:30 – 11:00 a.m.
