RTI International is seeking individuals from birth through 7 years, 11 months to participate in a research study. Researchers are gathering data on assessment scores from a large sample of children across the United States. Participants will take a variety of academic and developmental assessments, in areas such as cognitive, motor, communication, social- emotional, adaptive skills, and literacy. These assessments are used extensively in schools and other educational settings.

Where does this take place? Testing can take place at a school, library, or any other quiet space containing a table, chairs, and adequate lighting.
How long does it take? Testing takes approximately 1 to 3 hours, depending on the age of the participant and number of tests administered.
What are the assessments like? Parents must complete a parental consent form providing demographic information, such as age, race, and parent education level. A research examiner will give your child a series of age-appropriate assessments covering various developmental areas. Most participants find the game-like assessments to be fun and challenging. Depending on your child’s age, you may also be asked to answer some questions regarding your child’s development, so a parent must always be readily available.
What do I get in return for my participation? In return for your participation, individuals will receive a $25—$100 retail gift card (amount is determined by age & number of tests administered).
Are my test results kept confidential? Yes, all participants’ names, demographic data, and scores are guarded by the examiner and test publisher and are kept strictly confidential.
Send a message with your name, contact, city of residence/zip code, as well as the age and race/ethnicity of child.
*We are seeking persons in the following areas: Glendale, Peoria, Avondale, Goodyear and Tolleson. If you are outside of these areas, we can connect you with another clinical examiner, so feel free to reach out. At this time, we are in need of ethnic minority groups to establish those norms for the assessment.
