Intelligence or General Abilities Assessment


Payment Plan Available

50 Minute Consultation

Intelligence tests often referred to as cognitive assessments can show an individuals intellectual potential by measuring thinking and problem-solving skills.  These tests identify areas of strength and weakness and suggest where further testing needs to be done.

Intelligence tests are not a measure of how “smart” someone is. They measure intellectual potential.

Achievement tests measure an acquired skill or knowledge (what a person knows and can do).  For example how much a person knows about a certain topic, such as mathematics or spelling, or how much of a capacity they have (i.e., your aptitude) to master material in a particular area, such as mechanical relationships.
