Purpose: Assess visual and verbal memory in children, adolescents, and young adults
Age range: 5 to 21 years
Admin time: 30-40 minutes for full assessment; 10-15 minutes for Screening Index
Qualification Level: A (Psychologist)
The ChAMP™ is a norm-referenced test of memory for use with children, adolescents, and young adults that allows both in-depth memory evaluation and memory screening.
Features and benefits
- Based on the latest neuroscience research on human memory.
- Brief and easy to administer yet comprehensive: covers core verbal and visual memory domains with only a few subtests.
- Uses common, real-life scenarios and colourful, developmentally appropriate stimuli that are engaging and relevant to young examinees.
- Administration time is only 35 minutes, with no additional delay time required; Screening Index takes about 10 minutes.
- No motor response required.
- Focused on learning—each subtest has multiple learning trials.
- Includes built-in validity indicators.
- Allows for in-depth analysis and progress monitoring through discrepancy score analysis and reliable change scores; a base rate analysis of low scores and a strengths and weaknesses analysis are also available.
- Provides intervention recommendations for both home and school.
- Includes two verbal memory and two visual memory subtests; these combine to yield an overall score, the Total Memory Index. Additional Index scores reflect performance in visual and verbal memory and immediate and delayed memory.
- The Screening Index, comprising one verbal and one visual subtest, is useful for brief memory screening.
- Standardised using a large normative sample of more than 1,200 participants representative of the 2012 U.S. population.
- Clinical sample includes a large clinical sample of more than 200 children with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, brain injury, and intellectual development disability.
- Supported by strong evidence of reliability and validity.
