Psychometric/Educational Assessments:

 

A full psycho-educational assessment is appropriate whenever there are concerns about a child’s learning ability or educational performance. Psycho-educational assessment involves the use of reliable measures that evaluate a child’s IQ (academic potential) and academic skills (such as reading, spelling, mathematics, written language, and oral language skills). A Psycho-educational assessment is comprised of at least two types of testing; psychometric and educational testing.

 

Commonly used Psychometric tests:

Depending on the age group and requirement of the individual, following tests are used:

 

Aptitude Tests: are the ability tests which bring out the individual’s mental capabilities depicted in the individual’s abstract reasoning, verbal reasoning, spatial reasoning, mechanical reasoning and numerical abilities.

 

Intelligence Test : are psychological tests that are designed to measure a variety of mental functions, such as reasoning, comprehension, and judgment; results show the range in which an individual’s cognitive abilities lie.

 

Personality Tests: depict various dimensions portraying the characteristic way in which a person behaves.

 

Psychometric (IQ) tests measure cognitive abilities such as:

 

Attention                                                                                 Memory

Auditory and visual processing                                              Language skills

Eye-hand co-ordination                                                          Planning ability

Verbal reasoning                                                                    Perceptual and Spatial skills

  • Reading
