Short Description of Instrument
The Functional Assessment of Verbal Reasoning and Executive Stratagies –Student version (FAVRES-S) measures a child’s reasoning skills by presenting him/her with everyday scenarios that the child must respond to orally or in writing. Standard scores and the following subscale scores are computed: 1) getting the facts; 2) eliminating irrelevant material; 3) weighing facts; 4) flexibility; 5) predicting consequences; and 6) a total reasoning score.
 
The test is individually administered and subjects note their responses in response booklets. Takes approximately 60 minutes to complete.
Scoring
Time to complete, accuracy of solution (0-5), and quality of rationale (0-5) provided are measured on each the FAVRES tasks. Total test scores for time, accuracy, and reasons are calculated as the sum of each of the four subtests. Normative data for the adult version are available for comparison with the subject's score.
