Score reporting
and test design data
Raw scores can be converted into percentile ranks, standard scores, and age- and grade-equivalent scores. A guide is also provided to convert raw scores into criterion-referenced categories (Very Superior, Superior, etc.). This assessment was normed using a national sample of 1,461 students. Inter-rater reliability was in the 0.9 range. Validity was assessed in a variety of ways, including correlation with the CTOPP, age differentiation, and consequent construct validity.
Notes This is one of the few assessments of Rapid Automatic Naming (RAN) that has been implicated in the double-deficit hypothesis.
