Should I have my child tested?
Testing is helpful in:
- Screening for and identifying learning difficulties
- Determining a child's overall cognitive and aptitude levels
- Establishing a child's specific learning style so that instruction can be individualized
- Identifying a child's emotional functioning and its impact on schooling
- Establishing present levels of performance so progress can be measured
- Objectively evaluating a child against stated criteria
- Comparing a child's performance against a larger group of children (with similar characteristics and at a similar age)
What types of tests are there?
