We have a new learning tool – The Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills

What is this? Glad you asked!

A Professional Assessment:

·  Available for Grades 4 - 12

·  Helps us, as parent/educators, understand how our students learn

· Provides strategies to set our students up for success

· Measures skills that underlie a student’s ability to learn with:

  • Long-term and Short-term Memory
  • Logic and Reason
  • Visual and Auditory Processing
  • Processing Speed

But wait…there’s more…

· Each parent receives a report of their student’s individual results showing relative strengths and weaknesses to age-based norms

· These results provide an invaluable guide to understanding how your student learns and why some things may come easily to one student and be so challenging to another

Next Steps:

· Register your student/s to test during an open class period at WEST with several time options -

  • Cost is $20/test
  • The Gibson Test cannot be substituted for State Annual Testing Requirements

· Receive test results and explanation of cognitive skills and their impact on learning during one parent seminar held on Tuesday, March 2, 1 pm at WEST

· Read the attached information regarding the Gibson Test

WEST is partnering with the non-profit Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research and LearningRx to offer this testing at a significant discount to WEST families.

For parents who have always wondered why their student/s learn the way they do, this will be a fabulous opportunity to get some answers and help.

This recommendation comes from the WEST Team with personal experience regarding our own kiddos learning styles.
