An Easy to Administer, Scientifically Valid Cognitive Assessment
The Mindprint Assessment enables educators, clinicians, and parents to understand how an individual child learns. The child’s learning profile serves as a guide to providing the optimal supports for individualized learning. The Mindprint assessment is suitable for ages 8 through 21. The assessment takes about an hour to administer and assesses the following skills:
- Abstract Reasoning
- Flexible Thinking
- Verbal Memory
- Verbal Reasoning
- Visual Memory
- Visual Motor Speed
- Working Memory
The results are presented as a Unique Learning Profile with specific recommendations for strategies and access to a personalized toolkit of resources reviewed by educational experts.
- Provide a deeper understanding of a child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses
- Create a baseline against which to measure improvements in cognitive functioning as a result of cognitive training, using an independent measure
- Offer a roadmap to individualized learning within a Universal Design for Learning framework
The Mindprint assessment was developed by neuroscientists at Brain Behavior Laboratory, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. It was normed on over 10,000 children via an NIH-sponsored study. Its reliability has been reviewed in scientific journals, including JAMA Psychiatry and APA Neuropsychology.
Mindprint can be used at home, or in a school or learning resource setting, as well as by clinicians.
|WHO||The Mindprint Cognitive Assessment is appropriate for ages 8 to 21. The child should be reading at a second-grade level to take the assessment. The Mindprint Assessment has options for parents, schools, and clinicians.|
|WHAT||This nationally normed, scientifically valid online cognitive assessment can be used in a variety of situations. First, it will provide an accurate and actionable Learning Profile for the assessed individual. This provides the basis for more effective learning strategies, supported by a personalized toolbox of resources. The assessment can also be used to screen individuals with the results indicating areas of concern that should be probed with other assessments that could yield a diagnosis. The assessment can also be used to measure the impact of cognitive interventions or treatments (such as medication for ADHD).|
|WHEN||The assessment takes about an hour to administer. Generally, it does not make sense to repeat the assessment in less than 6 to 12 months, unless it is being used to measure the impact of cognitive interventions or treatments.|
|WHERE||You will need a desktop or laptop computer, PC or Macintosh, computer mouse, and computer keyboard. You will need Internet access to download each part of the battery, but the Internet speed will not impact the test or the child’s performance.|
