The Cognitive Assessment System-Brief (CAS2:BRIEF) is a standardised assessment of cognitive ability based on the cognitive/neuropsychological theory PASS (planning, attention, simultaneous and successive).
PASS abilities are evaluated using four subtests (planned codes, simultaneous matrices, expressive attention and successive digits) which are combined to provide a total score.
The CAS2:BRIEF was designed to be used whenever a fast, reliable, research-based measure is needed to evaluate PASS cognitive abilities. This would include initial testing to measure overall ability and examination of variability in PASS scores to determine possible implications for intervention.
