The SIT-P is a new, brief, screening test of children's intelligence. It includes both Crystallized Verbal and Fluid Performance items to give a balanced measure of a child's cognitive ability. The SIT-P was designed to facilitate the screening of children at risk of educational failure, to provide a quick estimate of mental ability, and to identify children who may be appropriate candidates for deeper testing services. A wide range of items (Verbal; Perceptual Speed; Block Design; Visual-Motor; Performance) yield two scaled Verbal and Performance standard scores which combined form a Total Standard Score (TSS).

The crystallized items include:

  • Vocabulary
  • Similarities and Differences
  • Digit Sequences
  • Sentence Memory
  • Quantitative Skills.

Nonverbal abilities include:

  • Fine Motor & Gross Motor — stacking blocks, locomotion (walking, running) and coordination (dexterity, geometric patterns).
  • Block Design — Lower Level and Upper Level. Includes blocks with patterns on each side. Child is asked to "make the tops of your blocks look like the blocks in this picture."
  • Perceptual-Motor Speed — Upper Level. Timed task of picking out the correct geometric pattern from a set of five different patterns.
  • Visual-Motor Integration — Both Levels.

The SIT-P Complete Kit includes a Manual, Picture Book with 23 plates, Eight 1" Blocks with patterns, and two sets of Response Booklets.
