Course Descriptions, The Learning Propensity Assessment Device (LPAD)

Our MissionThe Learning Propensity Assessment Device (LPAD) was developed to assess cognitive functioning. It is appropriate for administration to individuals or in small group settings. It is intended to be, as nearly as possible, content free since completion of the tasks does not require prior academic knowledge.

LPAD, Level I

Participants will study the theoretical basis for the LPAD and will have the opportunity to learn to administer the entry-level instruments from the LPAD battery; observe a demonstration, and practice administering specified instruments. (It is required that participants in this course have prior training in IE Standard I.)

LPAD, Level II

Participants will have the opportunity to learn to administer the higher order instruments from the LPAD battery. Special attention will be given to recording data and preparing reports. (Only those who have completed LPAD Level I training are eligible for this class.)

Note: More detailed course descriptions suitable for use when applying for staff development or graduate school credits are available upon request.
