Biomedical Terminologies and Standards

Notes
Ages 3 to 17. Higher scores indicate higher levels of cognitive functioning. A score at or near 100 indicates ability that is average compared with others nationally (the comparison will depend on which scale score is being discussed). Scores around 115 suggest above-average cognitive ability, while scores around 130 suggest superior ability (in the top 2 percent nationally, based on Toolbox normative data). Conversely, a score around 85 suggests below-average cognitive ability, and a score in the range of 70 or below suggests significant impairment, which may also be predictive of difficulties in school.

Guidelines/Instructions
Early Childhood Composite Score is derived from the four cognition measures that comprise the Early Childhood Battery: Picture Vocabulary, Flanker, DCCS and Picture Sequence Memory. It is designed primarily for Toolbox users assessing children ages 3-6. This composite score is derived by averaging the normalized scores of each of the four component measures, and then deriving scale scores based on this new distribution. An Age-Adjusted Scale Score, Fully Adjusted Scale Score, Unadjusted Scale Score and Age-Adjusted National Percentile are provided for the Early Childhood Composite. No min/max value is provided.
