WJV is expected to launch in 2025likely in February or March.

There is no plans to release a paper version, and the digital version will offer an even better experience for the users.

Data collection is based on the 2020 censusThe first cases were collected in early 2022 and the final cases were collected in 2024This time period encompasses norming cases, validity cases, and clinical study casesPiloting of tests occurred in 2021.

WJ IV will still be supported for a few years after the release of the WJ V, although the exact timeline is unknownRiverside will most likely move WJ IV out of print within 2-3 years, which is standard practice after the release of a new version.

The new Virtual Test Library now includes various tests, including many that were previously part of the WJ IV Oral Language battery, which have been moved to the Achievement battery to better support special education needs. Additionally, new tests assessing cognition, achievement, and language have been introduced, resulting in the discontinuation of the “Oral Language” label. The Virtual Test Library can function independently or alongside the Cognitive and Achievement components, providing comprehensive diagnostic insights and detailed information on strengths and weaknesses from the administered tests and clusters.

Tests from ECAD that will be in WJ V are: 

  • Verbal Analogies (early form in ECAD)
  • Number Sense (early form on ECAD) 

That said, these are not the same items necessarily as the WJ V is for ages 4 years, 0 months through adulthood. The ECAD tests in WJ V were designed for 4 years of age and older, so it’s still best to use the ECAD when assessing young children less than 4 years of age. 

There are two pricing models available: unlimited and subtest subscriptions.

Unlimited Subscription:  Schools and districts pay $0.75 per student, based on the total number of students reported in the prior year. This grants annual access to all WJ V products and training materials.

Subtest Subscription: Schools and districts pay $2.50 per subtest annually, with a minimum order of $200. This allows administrators to choose specific subtests from any battery, valid for one year from the subscription date. Additional subtests can be purchased throughout the year, maintaining a single subscription expiry date.
