Author: Raymond E. Webster
Visual & Auditory Memory/Sequencing
Ages 5 through Adult (90+)
Individual Administration

TIPS Performance Relates to:
executive function
working memory
auditory processing, visual processing
learning / retaining /organizing / using new information
TIPS assesses
how a person (age 6 through 90+) processes information that is either seen or heard
how much information is retained (immediate and delayed recall)
how it is retained (in the sequence presented or in a scrambled order)
the effects of interference on recall
semantic fluency

The TIPS provides clinicians with quick and reliable measures of how well a person processes information (letter strings) presented visually and auditorally. Short-term, working memory, and delayed recall tasks show differences between sequenced and non-sequenced retention (a hallmark of those with learning disabilities). Error analyses (Proactive Inhibition and Auditory Intrusion) document the extent to which new information is lost or its retention is inhibited. Although TIPS had its genesis in the Learning Efficiency Test (R. Webster, 1981, 1992, and 1998), it features new items, new subtests (Delayed Recall and Word Fluency), new scoring procedures, and new norms.

Administration and Scoring
The TIPS can be administered in about 20-25 minutes. Memory is assessed in two modalities (Visual and Auditory) and three recall conditions using strings of two to nine non-rhyming letters. Sequential and non-sequential scores are obtained; standard scores and percentile ranks are provided.

TIPS Subtests
Visual and Auditory Modality
Letter Strings are presented and the letters are recalled immediately, then recalled after and interference task (counting), then recalled again after a longer interference task (repeating a sentence)
scores differentiate letters recalled in the exact sequence as presented as well as for letters recalled out of sequence;
Error analysis provides Acoustic Intrusion and Proactive Interference
Delayed Recall Subtest
nimal or fruits from the interference sentences are recalled;
Semantic Fluency Subtest
word lists are generated orally within one-minute spans,
word lists are written within one-minute spans.
