Cognitive Assessment Projects

Cognitive assessment is the use of testing to evaluate performance across a variety of cognitive constructs and skills.  One research activity in this area of the institute is the ongoing collection of validity and reliability evidence for the digital Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills and the paper-based Gibson Assessment of Cognitive Skills as well as ancillary instruments used in the cognitive training field. Another area of our research is collecting assessment data to construct cognitive profiles in ADHD, dyslexia, and other neurodevelopmental disorders to help inform both clinical interventions and practices in the classroom. We also carry out projects to correlate traditional assessment outcomes with neuroimaging data.

**Invitation to researchers: We encourage the continued study of the revised digital Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills to assess validity and reliability with different populations.  We offer the test at no cost to researchers who include a plan for publication in their research proposal to us.  If you are interested in using the test in your research, or if you’d like to conduct a study to assess validity and reliability of the test with a specific population, please contact us.
