- Perceptual organization index- Matrix reasoning subtest [ Time Frame: 10-15 minutes ]The examinee views an incomplete matrix or series and selects the response option that completes the matrix or series. Scoring is based on whether the response is right or wrong.
- Perceptual organization index- Block design subtest [ Time Frame: 15-20 minutes ]The Block Design subtest is designed to measure the ability to analyze and synthesize abstract visual stimuli. While viewing a constructed model or a picture in the Stimulus Book, the examinee uses red- and-white blocks to re-create the design within a specified time limit. Scoring is based on how quickly the participant completes.
- Processing speed index- Coding subtest [ Time Frame: 2-3 minutes ]The processing speed index measures a child's ability efficiently to scan and understand visual information and complete a task with the data. Scoring is based on how many can the participant finish in 120 seconds.
- Working memory index- Digit span subtest [ Time Frame: 5-10 minutes ]The task digit span uses numbers. Memory span is a common measure of short-term memory. It is also a component of cognitive ability. Scoring is based on how many correct answers (recall) are achieved
