The fourth edition of the Wide Range Achievement Test includes a new subtest, Reading Comprehension, in addition to the original Word Reading, Spelling, and Arithmetic subtests. The WRAT-4 provides standard scores and percentile ranks by both age and grade, a national stratified sample, scaling and item analysis by the Rasch Method and two equivalent alternate test forms. These alternate forms, Gray and Red, can be used for pretesting and posttesting or combined for more comprehensive test results. Administration for either the Gray or Red Test Form is approximately 30-45 minutes (15 to 30 if only Word Reading, Spelling and Math are administered). The age range for the WRAT–4 is 5 to 95.
