A cognitive neuroscience based computerized battery for efficient measurement of individual differences: Standardization and initial construct validation
They are cognitive neuroscience-based computerized battery based on translating tasks used in functional neuroimaging to tests for assessing individual differences in multiple cognitive domains. Inter-item correlations were moderate to high within domain and low to nil across domains, indicating construct validity.
Impact of BrainWare SAFARI Use on Cognitive and Academic Measures in Grades 2-8
All students at Glenwood Academy, a residential program for 2nd- through 8th-grade students from impoverished backgrounds with troubled family situations, used BrainWare SAFARI. Average improvement from the pre-test to the post-test, following 10 weeks of BrainWare SAFARI use, ranged from 0.5 grade equivalents (GE) in 2nd grade to 2.9 GE in 8th grade. Average improvement on the cognitive tests ranged from 1.5 GE in 2nd grade to a high of 3.0 GE in 7th grade. The results showed a clear relationship between the improvement in underlying attention, memory and other cognitive processes and performance on academic tests.
