Executive Function, retention, recall, and memory capacity are easily detailed

The TIPS provides clinicians with quick and reliable measures of how well a person processes information (letter strings) presented visually and auditorily.
Although TIPS had its genesis in the Learning Efficiency Test (R. Webster, 1981, 1992, and 1998), it features new items, new subtests (Delayed Recall and Word Fluency), new scoring procedures, and new national norms (N=3,314).

Short-term and working memory responses show differences between sequenced and non-sequenced retention (a hallmark of those with learning disabilities).
Error analyses (Proactive Inhibition and Auditory Intrusion) document the extent to which new information is lost or its retention is inhibited.
Administration and Scoring
The TIPS can be administered in about 30 minutes. Processing is assessed in two modalities (Visual and Auditory) and three recall conditions using strings of two to nine non-rhyming letters. Sequential and non-sequential scores are obtained; standard scores and percentile ranks are provided.
