CTOPP-2 interpreting results of testing

    I wonder if anybody has experience with interpretation of results of the composite scores, particularly for RAPID SYMBOLIC NAMING. Student I tested had 5 mistakes on both sub-tests (Rapid Digit Naming & Rapid Letter Naming). The booklet suggests that if "....the examinee makes more than 4 errors when naming numbers" no score is awarded.
    I wondered how to use this information on Form 8 as I never encountered this result.
    Thank you for your professional advice

    I wonder if you found an answer... Have recently had the same experience with a student and wondering how to then assess the student for this part of the CTOPP!

    What they are saying is that if you score it, it will not be a reliable score. Their standardisation set could not reliably account for the performance once more than 4 errors were made, so unfortunately you have to record no score. It is a pain for access arrangements and Form 8s, but you need to find another test score.
