NEW! The Stroop Color and Word Test aids in diagnosis of brain dysfunction and the evaluation of stress, executive functions, and cognitive abilities. The Stroop phenomenon is useful in the identification of a number of significant disorders and has been recommended as a test for ADHD, dementia, and traumatic brain injury and to ascertain the degree of independence likely to be achieved by individuals with frontal lobe disorders. The cognitive dimension tapped by Stroop is associated with cognitive flexibility, resistance to interference from outside stimuli, creativity, and psychopathology--all of which influence an individual's ability to cope with cognitive stress and process complex output.
Developed in response to the demand for a Stroop Test specifically normed and interpreted for children, these new materials detail administration, scoring, and interpretive strategies for younger clients.
Interpretation of a child's score is more difficult than an adult's, as it is affected by developmental trends, possible learning disabilities, attention problems, emotional problems and overall maturity. This Children's Version of the Stroop has been designed to avoid measurement issues that exist in attempting to apply the scoring approach of the adult Stroop to children's data. Interpretive strategies also differ between younger (ages 5-10 years) and older children (ages 11-14 years), and are presented separately in the Children's Manual.
Since it requires only five minutes to administer, the Stroop Color and Word Test is an exceptionally useful screening instrument, which may be used alone or as part of a larger screening battery. The Stroop is used extensively in research, particularly in clinical trials, as a well-research instrument sensitive to comparing changes in functioning between experimental and control groups.
