This battery comprehensively assesses the integrity of memory functions in children and enables comparison with measures of both ability and achievement. In keeping with the high standards of technical quality, reliability, and validity established by the Wechsler series, the CMS links learning and memory directly to ability and achievement, as measured by the WISC-III, WPPSI-R, and WIAT. The CMS parallels the structure of the adult Wechsler Memory Scales. Its 6 core subtests load onto scales tapping
- Immediate Verbal Memory
- Delayed Verbal Memory
- General Memory
- Immediate Visual Memory
- Delayed Visual Memory
It features minimal item bias and extensive clinical validation studies, making it appropriate as a process skills screening instrument for children with learning difficulties or memory/attentional deficits resulting from TBI, epilepsy, cancer, etc.
Average reliability coefficient: E.G. .91 (general memory)
Test-retest reliability: E.G. .89 (attention/concentration ages 9-12)
Inter-rater reliability: E.G. .94 (delayed word lists ages 5-8)
