The children’s version of the Stroop was designed to avoid measurement issues that exist in the application of adult scoring procedures to children’s data.

Covers interpretive strategies for both younger children and older children

  • The manual details specific administration, scoring, and interpretive strategies for use with younger children (ages 5-10 years) and older children (ages 11-14 years).
  • Examinees read words or name colors on three different pages as quickly as possible.
  • The test yields three scores based on the number of items completed. In addition, an Interference score is derived.

Note: Stopwatch is required for administration.
