Block design puzzles are a type of puzzle that is used in the WISC-IV test, which stands for “Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children.” They are designed to assess spatial and visual abilities. Block design puzzles can be categorized into nine different types: 1) geometric designs; 2) letter series; 3) numbered shapes; 4) symmetric designs with squares or rectangles; 5) symmetric designs with circles or ovals; 6) asymmetric designs with rectangles, 7 ) asymmetric designs with ovals, 8 ) segmentation problems (blocks within blocks), 9 ) picture completion (identifying missing parts). The test is 15 minutes long, and the time begins when the child starts working on solving block design puzzles. It consists of 19 blocks, each with a different pattern drawn onto it in pencil. Some kids are able to finish the puzzle quickly, while others may require more time; this depends on how well they do at spatial reasoning tasks. Block Design can be timed for three levels: easy (less than five minutes), medium (five-ten minutes) or hard (ten+). Children who finish these puzzles within two seconds are classified as gifted in this task. Rather than just categorizing them by difficulty level though, we should focus more closely on what type of designs children complete during their tests because that gives us better
