Psychometric Excellence of the WN Test

Inspired by the well-regarded EPC1, the WN test, initially released in 2009 and revised in 2023, has shown strong psychometric properties. The first edition demonstrated high internal consistency, with a Cronbach's Alpha of .93. This statistic is a key indicator of reliability, reflecting the test's ability to consistently measure cognitive performance. Validity was substantiated through correlations with established cognitive tests such as the WAIS-III and APM, ranging from .76 to .92, indicating strong concurrent validity.2

The latest revision of the WN test further exhibited excellent reliability, evidenced by a Guttman's Lambda-6 coefficient of .95 (N = 94), reinforcing its consistency as a cognitive assessment tool.
