Product Description

The Automated Working Memory Assessment (AWMA) is a PC-based assessment of working memory skills, with a user-friendly interface. This tool provides a practical and convenient way for teachers and psychologists to screen for significant working memory problems from childhood through to early adulthood. 

This innovative tool requires minimal training as the administration and scoring is fully automated. The testing sequence is pre-set, test scores are calculated by the computer program and an interpretation of how their working memory scores will affect their learning is provided.

Working memory abilities are closely associated with a wide range of measures of academic ability, including literacy and mathematics. The majority of those with recognised learning difficulties in these areas have working memory impairments.

Poor working memory skills in the early years of education are also effective predictors of poor scholastic attainments over the subsequent school years. Screening is the first and very important step in being able to provide the appropriate intervention for children.

The AWMA provides two installations per kit and is a one-year licence.  For multi-users please contact|.

Different versions of the AWMA

There are three levels of assessment within AWMA:

1. AWMA Screener
This is made up of two tests and is suitable for screening individuals with suspected working memory difficulties.

2. AWMA: Short Form (AWMA-S)
This consists of four tests and is recommended to screen individuals who are suspected to have memory difficulties, but the specific area of their difficulties is not known.

3. AWMA: Long Form (AWMA-L)
This consists of all 12 tests and is recommended for confirmation of significant working memory problems for individuals identified as having working memory problems in the classroom.

The operating systems supported by our software are Windows XP | Vista | 7. Ensure your computer meets the minimum software requirements prior to purchasing our software.
