A non-language test of executive functioning, planning, and inhibition
S.D. Porteus

  • Age Range: 3 years through adult
  • Time: Approximately 15 minutes, individual administration

The Porteus Maze Test (Vineland Revision), published by Stoelting, is a nonverbal test of mental ability. The tests were designed to examine the individual's ability to use planning, patience and mental alertness in a novel, concrete performance task.

The Porteus Maze Test is especially accurate at differentiating lower levels of cognitive ability.  Poor performance on the Maze Test has been found to be associated with ADHD, Substance Abuse, and other behavioral disorders related to deficits in executive functioning, particularly inihibition and planning.  The Porteus Maze Test has been used in research as a relatively low-verbal measure of executive functioning.

The Porteus Maze Test also measures social sufficiency and adaptability. It is one of the few tests to reveal the temperamental defects that interfere with learning, and thus mar achievement. 

The Porteus Maze Test yields a Developmental Age score, based on normative values, and a Qualitative Score, which is indicative of difficulties with inhibition.  The Maze Test has been found to be useful in research to measure executive functioning and can be used as a screening instrument when working with individuals of low-language abilities when a measure of executive functioning is desired.

The Porteus Maze Test Kit consists of 14 Mazes (100 copies each) for ages 3 through 14, plus two adult levels, Scoring Sheets (25 copies each) and a Manual.

The Porteus Maze Test Scoring Sheets (25 copies each) provide instructions on obtaining a Developmental Age Score and Qualitative Score.

The Porteus Maze Test Training DVD provides training on test administration, research conducted with the test, scoring and interpretation procedures and case vignettes.

Replacement Mazes are available at $25.00, Pk/100. Use catalog number on maze form to order.
