Product Details

The Children's Category Test® (CCT®) offers multiple uses in measuring the complex intellectual functioning of higher-order cognitive abilities.

CCT is appropriate for use in combination with intellectual and academic achievement tests and is an ideal nonverbal task to be administered independently or during the California Verbal Learning Test®—Children's Version's (CVLT®–C) delayed recall section. It also responds to federal legislation requiring the evaluation of students suspected of having traumatic brain injury. In addition, the test accommodates the needs of children with color acuity problems and may be appropriate for children with severe motor handicaps.

Unlike most comparable instruments, CCT was standardized on a national sample with stratification variables including age, sex, race/ethnicity, region, and parent education level. It is a booklet version based on the Halstead-Reitan Category Test for Children. CCT was co-normed with the CVLT-C.
