Which specific subtests do you anticipate being most challenging? How will you minimize mistakes as you begin administration?

Assessment Administration

The first step in learning to administer a cognitive assessment instrument is to review its accompanying manual. You may have to do this several times, and you may find that, while following standardized procedures may seem straightforward, it takes time to learn. You may also find that some procedures are more difficult than others. As you read the manual, consider which areas may cause difficulty for you.
