Comprehensively assesses the integrity of memory functions in children and enables comparison with measures of both ability and achievement.
Now you can compare memory and learning to ability, attention, and achievement. The Children’s Memory Scale™ (CMS) fills the need for a comprehensive learning and memory test for children ages five to 16.

As a screener or diagnostic instrument, CMS measures learning in a variety of memory dimensions:
- Attention and working memory
- Verbal and visual memory
- Short- and long-delay memory
- Recall and recognition
