Assessment System Launched

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today announced that its Riverside division has released the next generation of the Woodcock Johnson suite of assessment products – the Woodcock Interpretation and Instructional Interventions Program™ (WIIIP) 2.0. The new system gives users interpretation guidance and instructional interventions for each student. WIIIP 2.0 has also expanded interventions to English Language Learners (ELL).

WIIIP 2.0 provides an updated database of research-based interventions—more than 500 in total. The assessment will then assist the educator to analyze results to correctly identify disparities between achievement and predicted achievement based on cognitive ability levels. If a learning gap is identified, WIIIP 2.0 provides interventions to ensure that each student’s needs are met.

WIIIP 2.0 builds on existing features with the addition of:

  • New interventions that are included for the Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) cognitive factors, representing dozens of new interventions or accommodations.
  • New interventions that are specifically intended for English Language Learners (ELL).
  • Item-level mathematics procedures for two mathematics tests, which help to identify gaps in mathematical knowledge and receive formative interventions to address any underlying undeveloped mathematics skill.
  • Three reports that can be printed in Spanish, which include the summary, score report, and proficiency profile report.

WIIIP 2.0 is available as a kit or a downloadable upgrade for current 1.1 users. For more information on this product or the rest of the Woodcock Johnson suite of assessments, visit
