Testing and Evaluation

Here are some questions to ask yourself:
Are you afraid to take tests or return to school?
Do you learn better by doing and seeing instead of listening?
Do you think that you have a learning problem?
Have you ever been told you’re not trying hard enough even though you are trying very hard?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the MAP (Multiple Abilities Profile) assessment may HELP you understand how you best learn and which areas of information processing could be improved to HELP you better learn and remember information. Everyone learns differently and has different learning styles and information processing strengths.

About the MAP (Multiple Abilities Profile)

The MAP is a completely objective computerized test, standardized by age. The MAP focuses on identifying individual processing strengths and weaknesses; showing each person’s best learning styles, processing abilities and areas in which they could build skills. This is a proctored assessment with a learning specialist ensuring validity by verifying the student understands the instructions.

You will spend approximately two hours at the computer taking the assessment; followed by an evaluation with a learning specialist to explain the results.

The MAP’s developer Stanley R. Riley, Ph.D. realized with his assessment instrument that a multiple-intelligences approach, actually upgrades standard I.Q. and performance tests by considering separately all the abilities that these tests can validly and reliably assess.

Over the 30 years spent developing his assessment model, both in private practice and as a school psychologist, Dr. Riley repeatedly found that students’ 12 area processing abilities MAP graph reveals at a glance why many capable students are not learning. Only one or two significant information processing weaknesses can be enough to derail even the most dedicated students’ academic career. Once identified by means of the MAP assessment, after completing our Brain Power Program, even students with multiple weaknesses can achieve academic proficiency and success.

Evaluation

You will be told about your learning strengths and about the areas in which you could build skills. You will be given a printed evaluation of your MAP test, including an easy to read color bar graph profiling 12 critical processes.

IQ tests can hide cognitive strengths and weaknesses, by issuing one score. Dr. Riley’s MAP assessment prints out, the student’s 12 information–processing abilities in easily understood bar graph form.

Teachers can benefit from knowing the preferred learning styles of their students; but more importantly, the MAP assessment provides teachers, parents and students with an increased awareness of how the student learns.
