The S-FRIT is an easy-to-use, reliable screening test that provides a balanced measure of Verbal Performance/Memory cognitive assessment. It assesses Verbal Skills/Quantitative/Recall Memory/Abstract Performance Reasoning. Differentially screens nonverbal from verbal abilities even when language skills are limited.
Intended to supplement more extensive cognitive assessments, the S-FRIT helps chart cognitive progress. It is also useful in helping to plan educational programming, and in screening new student admissions. By differentially screening Verbal Skills/Performance Abilities/Memory Recall the S-FRIT assures proper placement. Teachers, psychologists and counselors can administer it.
The 252 S-FRIT items yield separate indexes for Verbal, Performance and Memory abilities. When combined, they yield a Rull-Range Intelligence Quotient. The Item Profiles/Score Summaries Form provides a Full-Range Intelligence Quotient (FRIQ), Rapid Cognitive Index (RCI), subtest scores, and allows easy comparison of abilities, for additional interpretation.
All S-FRIT items are arranged by level of difficulty, with suggested starting points based on chronological age.The S-FRIT Computer Report, sold separately, automatically produces a two-page report with standard scores, percentiles, T-scores, Best g Index, Rapid Cognitive Index and subdomain scores. It also has the capability to compare S-FRIT results with any other achievement test, using standard scores.
The complete S-FRIT includes the Examiner and Technical Manuals, Picture Book, and 25 each of Motor Response Forms, Brief Score Forms and Item Profile/Score Summary Forms.
