What is a Psychoeducational Assessment?

A psychoeducational assessment involves a standardized evaluation of a student’s cognitive and academic abilities, as well as an evaluation of various information processing skills essential in learning (e.g., memory, oral language, phonological awareness, attention).  It may also involve an evaluation of executive functioning, emotional regulation, social skills and problem behaviors.

A psychoeducational assessment can provide a clearer understanding of a student’s overall learning profile, as well as their areas of strengths and challenges. It can be helpful for educational planning purposes, identifying appropriate supports, and learning how to build on the student’s strengths. The assessment is conducted by a registered psychologist and is required by most school boards, colleges, universities, and professional licensing examination boards in the determination of student needs for accommodation.
