Time: 5-10 minutes

The Cognitive Assessment System, Rating Scale (CAS2:RATING) is a norm-referenced measure of behaviours related to cognitive / neuropsychological theory called PASS (Planning, Attention, Simultaneous, and Successive) completed by teachers.  

  • Planning - a cognitive process requiring the individual to determine, select, and use a strategy to solve a problem. The subtests require the solving of novel tasks
  • Attention - a cognitive process requiring the individual to selectively attend to a particular stimulus and inhibits attending to competing stimuli
  • Simultaneous - a cognitive process involving integrating separate stimuli into a single whole or group
  • Successive - a cognitive process requiring the serial ordering of things

The rating scale provides scores for Planning, Attention, Simultaneous, and Successive scales as well as a Total Score.

Scores from the CAS2: Rating Scale can be used to:

  • Support a referral, supportive services, or special placements
  • Supplement a comprehensive evaluation
  • Compare teachers’ ratings with test results
  • Help plan and design academic interventions by revealing behaviours and skills the teacher considers problematic or lacking
  • Monitor the effectiveness of interventions. Results are particularly useful when used as part of a comprehensive evaluation or as a pre-referral/referral tool
