|Author:||Connors, C. K.|
The Conners Kiddie Continuous Performance Test 2nd Edition (Conners K-CPT 2) is an individually administered computerized test of various elements of attention for children ages 4 through 7. It is a screening measure similar in design to the previous version. The Conners K-CPT 2, like its predecessor, includes five blocks of 40 trials, each divided into two sub-blocks of 20 trials that have either 1.5-second or 3.0-second Inter-Stimulus Intervals varying between sub-block 1 and 2. With the child sitting in front of a computer screen, target pictures (any picture except a soccer ball) and the non-target picture (soccer ball) are presented for 500 milliseconds; the child is instructed to press the keyboard space bar or wired mouse only when target pictures are presented. The purpose of the Conners K-CPT 2 is to aid in diagnoses of attention difficulties (e.g., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder; ADHD), clinical assessments, early identification of attention problems, and educational classification. The computer program is contained on a USB drive that may be plugged into a desktop or laptop computer to allow portability. The Conners K-CPT 2 technical manual notes that the measure may be administered by those who do not have advanced formal training in clinical psychology or psychometrics, provided they are trained and follow explicit procedures; however, interpretation must be provided by “suitably-accredited professionals” (manual, p. 3).
