The Children’s Psychological Processes Scale (CPPS) is a web-based teacher rating scale designed to assess psychological processes related to academic learning in children ages 5 through 12 years.
The main function of the CPPS is to facilitate the identification of psychological processing deficits in children referred for a learning disability evaluation. It is also suitable for screening and measuring response to interventions.
The CPPS consists of 121 items divided among 11 process scales.
- Auditory Processing
- Executive Functions
- Fine Motor
- Fluid Reasoning
- Long-Term Recall
- Oral Language
- Phonological Processing
- Processing Speed
- Visual-Spatial Processing
- Working Memory
The items describe academically related, psychological processing difficulties that can readily be observed by classroom teachers.
The ratings are compiled to generate a report that is free with the purchase of rating forms. The reports include a brief narrative, a graph, a table of scores, change-sensitive W-scores and a discrepancy table for determining intra-individual strengths and weaknesses.
