The TOVA is an important test that provides information not available through self-report, pencil-and-paper assessments or through observations of others. Combined with other assessment tools it provides a picture of academic, social and personal performance.
The TOVA is language and culture free, is normed by gender and age (4 to 80+ years), able to flag unusual performance and provides an extensive report of the finding.
The TOVA. is used by researchers, schools, rehabilitation programs, non-licensed health care settings, human resource departments and health care practitioners interested in providing an overview of attention and inhibitory control measures.
Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) measures the key visual and auditory components of:
- Consistency (variability)
