New App-like Program for Administration and Scoring
- Checks and calculates combined and total scores from examiner-entered demographic data and results of subtests
- Provides scaled scores and percentile ranks to aid interpretation
- Converts subtest scores to overall composite scales
- Generates PDF output report of scores with percentiles and scaled scores to print and/or place on file
New and Improved Psychometric Properties
UK standardization carried out on:
- 621 children ages 8–15
- 394 children ages 5–7
Standardization sample matched to UK 2011 census data for age, sex, SES, and ethnicity to ensure the diverse population is represented.

This is "An overview of the new TEA-Ch2." The TEA-Ch is a test of children's attention, first developed in 1997, and it has recently been revised in the UK. We will review the administration, and background to the test, and explore the new features. We will review the new sub-tests for children aged 5-7 years TEA-Ch2 J, and will explore the tests for ages 8 -15 years TEA-Ch2 A. We will review the standardization and norms, reliability, evidence of validity and special group studies. Attendees will learn how the test now covers a broader age range than the predecessor, and a much larger sample size. The scoring system will automatically generate scaled scores and index scores. A lot of the new test components are now conducted on the computer, but there are still paper and pencil tasks for children to complete. The computer presents auditory stimuli, test timing and automatic scores to enhance accuracy. Attendees will learn how it differs from the earlier version and other tests of attention in the market.
