Here are some of the highlights of the CPI:

  • The CPI provides a meaningful evaluation of underlying information processing characteristics of individuals with and without learning disabilities.


  • The CPI can be used either as part of a formal assessment process or as a pre-referral 'screening' tool.


  • The CPI can be used as a 'learning style' assessment for all students and adults.


  • The CPI rating forms are now available in both English and Spanish. 


  • The CPI provides a convenient and reliable method of objectively rating the long-term knowledge that parents have about their own children's' learning or processing characteristics.


  • The processing model of the CPI is based upon the most compelling cognitive research related to neuropsychological development and education.


  • The CPI has been thoroughly tested and refined over the past 15 years with extensive data and factor analytic evaluation.


  • The CPI provides standardized scores which allow examiners to determine the statistical significance of any processing pattern which is found.


  • The CPI not only evaluates the underlying 'processing' cause of existing learning difficulties but is also able to predict future problem areas both within and outside of a school environment.


  • The CPI provides a 'practical' assessment of cognitive processing with clear and useful programming implications for educators.


  • The computer scoring program for the CPI is simple to use and provides multiple levels of interpretive guidance and support.


  • The CPI helps to identify 'risk factors' from a student's background which may point to the origin of their cognitive processing difficulties.


  • The CPI 'makes sense' to parents, educators, and students.


The on-line CPI provides parents educators, and individuals with a convenient and risk-free means of trying out this assessment tool.
