I've also used the UWA site for "difficulty" proxies, maybe it'll prove useful to you:

There are some books like this:
Mark Davies: A frequency dictionary of American English. It has the most frequent words in English and some values about this frequency.
http://www.amazon.com/Frequency-Dictionary-American-English-Dictionaries-ebook/dp/B00EPE05VQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1412453152&sr=8-3&keywords=dictionary+frequency


Hope this helps.

This would especially be useful for words that are on the WAIS 1v

I hesitate to ask this mundane question amid the fascinating high-level discussion of "Rasching the PISA", but if anyone has information/links/data showing item difficulties for English vocabulary words, I would very much appreciate hearing about it. Thank you.
