Specialist Assessments

Cognitive assessments measure an individual’s abilities. It gives general information relative to other students the same age. The tests show how well a learner problem solves, how he/she best interprets information, (visual, auditory etc.), and measures other areas of cognitive processing such as memory and speed of processing.

Each assessment is different, but often the scales can focus on verbal ability, non-verbal ability, spatial skills, phonological skills, areas of memory, visual perceptual skills and processing speed in various tasks. Attainments in literacy & numeracy are also given to provide updated scores in reading, spelling, writing, and mathematics.

These assessments can help identify areas where learners may fall behind their peers and the detailed report also includes professional recommendations based on that individual’s needs to support their progress and learning. It will assist with the planning of appropriate intervention and support, this includes Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments.

Often these assessments may support applications for statutory assessment that could lead to a Statement of SEN, (or the equivalent due in Wales in the future).
