NIH Toolbox – Cognitive growth measured and explained
Easy, fast assessments of cognitive health based on research at the National Institutes of Health using the NIH Toolbox
Think how valuable it would be to have a simple, immediate, low-cost assessment. Think how many kids could be put on a success trajectory at the beginning of their formative years. Think how many kids could be saved from high-cost, disruptive special needs intervention programs.
Assessing cognitive growth requires scientifically designed tools. In order to combat the lack of uniformity and the questionable validity of assessment tools available to educators, parents, and clinicians, the National Institutes of Health has developed a “Toolbox” of cognitive assessments.
Upon a careful review of the assessments available from the NIH Toolbox, the C8 Sciences™ Scientific Advisory Board has recommended a battery of four core assessments that are especially appropriate for measuring the executive functioning skills of young children.
How Do the NIH Toolbox Tests Work?
ACTIVATE™ incorporates three key assessments from the NIH Toolbox for cognition.
Why cognitive assessments?
Educators and parents today are awash in data. Content assessments tell us something about what students may already know – but it’s only cognitive assessments focused on executive skills that tell us what they are capable of learning in the future – and what we can do to help.
