NIH Toolbox®: A Digital Assessment System for Neurobehavioral Functioning

Registration is required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
Julie N. Hook, PhD, MBA, ABPP, Research Associate Professor and the NIH Toolbox® Product Manager at Northwestern University.
Digitally administered cognitive tests are increasing in popularity. They can reduce examiner burden and enhance participant engagement because they are typically more colorful and engaging than their paper-and-pencil counterparts. This webinar will present an overview of the rise of digital cognitive assessments and describe specific test construction techniques that allow for brief and psychometrically sound tests (e.g., Computer Adaptive Testing and Item Response Theory). We will briefly review the history and development of the NIH Toolbox, followed by a more in-depth discussion of the four domains (Cognition, Motor, Sensation, and Emotion) of tests included in the NIH Toolbox app. As technology is always advancing, we will conclude with a look into the future directions of NIH Toolbox family of products, including an upcoming release of an infant assessment system incorporating eye-tracking.
