In-Person e-Stimulus Books and Kits are convenient, more hygienic alternatives to paper administration that allow you to administer the ChAMP face-to-face via tablet. Be sure to download our white paper prior to administering.
The ChAMP is an easy-to-use, examiner-administered test of memory for use with children, adolescents, and young adults that allows both in-depth memory evaluation and memory screening.
Faster to administer -- Screen in under 15 minutes and give the full test in less than 40 minutes. Plus, no additional wait time before administering the delayed subtests.
Easier to administer -- One form and one stimulus book are the only items required. No need to lug around a lot of materials between schools or offices.
Developed specifically for school-age children -- Real-life scenarios and colorful stimuli keep young examinees engaged.
Built-in validity indicator -- Embedded validity index alerts you to potentially invalid scores.
Helpful interventions -- Includes case examples and intervention recommendations for both school and home.
Includes Reliable Change -- Reliable change scores available in PARiConnect

Why should I add the ChAMP to my test battery?
The ChAMP allows for a customizable assessment of storage and retrieval of verbal and visual information, complementing what can be gleaned from tests of working memory (shorter-term retrieval). The ChAMP assesses for memory difficulties seen in many childhood conditions, both neurodevelopmental (learning disabilities, attention problems) and acquired (traumatic brain injury, other neurologic conditions). Each test uses engaging stimuli and multiple-trial learning to minimize demands on attention and working memory, focusing more on memory encoding and retrieval.
I have limited time for testing and scoring. Can I fit the ChAMP into my test battery?
Yes! When you need to screen for memory difficulties quickly, the tests for the Screening Index (one verbal, one visual) can be completed in about 10 minutes. When you have specific concerns about memory or if performance on the screening tests raises concerns, the entire ChAMP can be completed in an additional 25 minutes (30-40 minutes total). Subtest scoring is straightforward, and age-adjusted standardized scores can be obtained in minutes on PARiConnect.
I need to test in different locations. Does the ChAMP have a lot of materials to lug around?
Not at all! The ChAMP requires only one stimulus book, which can be displayed in print or digitally, and one record form. The record form uses one page per subtest and includes all the instructions and prompts. There are no response booklets or scraps of paper, and no need to switch between books. The memory delays are built in, so you don’t even need additional tests to fill the time.
How does the ChAMP help with recommendations and interventions?
The ChAMP Professional Manual has an entire chapter (6) dedicated to interpretation, recommendations, and case examples. The case examples encompass several of the most common disorders associated with varying memory profiles: specific learning disability, ADHD, autism, and traumatic brain injury. Different profiles are mapped onto recommendations, including differential diagnoses to explore, suggested accommodations, and skills to target in intervention.
How does the fact that the ChAMP is conormed with the Memory Validity Profile (MVP) and the Multidimensional Everyday Memory Ratings for Youth (MEMRY) help the practitioner? In what circumstance(s) would these all be used together?
Each component provides additional information about a child’s memory abilities, and conorming means that all three were standardized on the same large, representative sample. The ChAMP is a performance-based memory test with an embedded performance validity indicator and the MVP is a standalone performance validity test. The three forms of the MEMRY allow the student, parent, and teacher to provide their subjective ratings of the child’s real-world memory performance, and it also includes symptom validity scales. Together, these contribute to building a best-practice battery that includes at least two validity metrics. Either the ChAMP or MEMRY could be used in screening for memory problems, and the three together form a valuable segment of a comprehensive neuropsychological or psychoeducational evaluation.
Why does the ChAMP manual have two test-retest samples?
The ChAMP Professional Manual describes a test-retest sample that was retested 2-3 weeks after initial testing, and a reliable change sample that was retested about 3 months after their initial testing. The test-retest sample was used to calculate the stability of scores over a short time period, a standard metric in demonstrating the reliability of a test. The reliable change sample was retested over a longer interval to mimic real-world clinical practice, where an individual might be retested after a recovery period or intervention in order to measure progress or after a new injury or period of deterioration to measure the degree of new impairment. After you test a child twice, you can generate a Reliable Change Report on PARiConnect that compares the two administrations and highlights significant changes in scores.
