Learning is a cognitive process and cognitive skills are malleable. Therefore, measuring a student’s readiness or ability to learn is invaluable for those supporting a learner’s success. We believe these should be universally accessible.
Why a COGx Learner Profile?
COGx Learner Profile Sources
- Three critical perspectives: the learner + two others (educator + parent)
- Provides insights on the learner’s cognitive skills
- Produces subjective data on how the learner’s skills present
- Generates a clinical measurement of metacognitive knowledge and regulation
- Metacognitive strategies have a significantly positive impact on student outcomes (Hattie, 2012; Bjork et al., 2013).
- Set of short tests that are administered online
- Measures various cognitive skills
- Scientifically valid, standardized assessment providing normed percentile scores
- Recognized by many including Forbes, ETS, and Education Week
- Contact us to get started
- Pay to receive access to the assessments
- Learner, guardian and/or teacher complete Assessment 1 online
- Learner completes Assessment 2 online
- Adult supervises Assessment 3 online for learner

In combination, the inventories, metacognitive assessment, and clinical cognitive assessment provide a holistic picture of both subjective and objective data about the learner including:
- Involve an awareness and control over one’s own learning process.
- Metacognitive knowledge and regulation provide a comprehension of the individualized learning process and the ability to monitor and control related behaviors.
- Refers to a learner’s ability to store and retrieve information.
- Encoding and retrieving long-term memories is how we accumulate knowledge and apply what we know in order to think critically and creatively.
- Facilitate the ability to monitor the learning process and monitor goal-directed behavior.
- Motivation, planning, processing-regulation, emotional-regulation, self-monitoring, and self-regulation are necessary skills in achieving learning goals.
- Help us receive, hold, and make sense of information.
- Attention, working memory, and processing speed work interdependently to integrate information, which is a critical first step in learning.
Evidence Base - Importance of Learner Profile & Predictive Power on Learning Success:
"The Metacognitive Awareness Inventory has shown to predict science achievement in middle School and academic achievement in college students."
"The MindPrint assessment has been shown to predict academic success, providing critical insights on the strength of foundational cognitive skills."
