Examining The Test of Memory and Learning 2 TOMAL2 (DACPD802)

This Level 7 Specialist Assessor course (SASC approved) has been designed to enable you to explore the popular learning and memory assessment battery TOMAL2. It will enable practitioners to develop their knowledge of TOMAL2 through a cycle of study, focused activity and reflection.

Why take this short course?

This course gives an opportunity to look in-depth at an assessment battery that is designed to measure several areas of memory and learning potential (for example, aptitude with visual and configural information, aptitude holding and manipulating sound information, associative learning etc.).

There are data analysis exercises to help improve your interpretation of subtest findings and statistical quizzes to check your understanding of key terminology and rubrics. The course also provides the opportunity to discuss and examine some current assessment practices/conventions including some more advance statistical methods.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Critically examine the subtests of a learning and memory assessment battery.
  • Examine a variety of ways in which performance can be reported and represented within assessment reports.

Please note: you may need access to a copy of TOMAL2 to study this course; it is not a requirement to have used it previously.
If you are a member of the Dyslexia Action Guild then you may be able to borrow a copy (subject to availability.)

Please note: course content may be subject to change
