Your child is unique, and you want the best for them in schooling and life. The educational potential in children is boundless, but how do you measure your child’s potential during their learning years to give them the best opportunities for their skills, abilities, and desires?
Psycho-Educational Tests To Determine Educational Potential
Testing the educational potential in children isn’t simply about figuring out their intellectual strengths or weaknesses through a battery of tests. There’s much more to your child than being good at math and not so good at reading. And a learning disability doesn’t mean any doors closed to the educational potential in children either.
Whether your child is intellectually gifted in all areas or needs a more specialized path to learning, psycho-educational tests give us a bigger picture about what each child needs to succeed and flourish in society.
Let’s talk about how we accomplish this through testing methods like the following:
- Stanford Binet-5 Intelligence Scales (SB-5) are cognitive ability tests. Measurements include working memory, quantitative reasoning (counting, logic, and problem-solving), fluid reasoning (how easily a child learns or comprehends something new), and visual-spatial processing (learning physical things or making sense of numbers and letters).
- Nelson Denny Reading Test was developed to gauge vocabulary and reading comprehension from adolescence into young adulthood.
- Woodcock-Johnson Cognitive and Academic (WJ-III Ach and Cog) consists of “standard battery” tests and “extended battery” tests administered to children from their toddler years into young adulthood. The testing areas to determine educational potential in children include comprehension, memory, reading-writing, visual-spatial processing, listening, quantitative logic and problem solving, and learning new things.
