TIP:  Test of Ideational Praxis - Short Form

The Test of Ideational Praxis (TIP) is an objective assessment of ideational abilities in children. The TIP assesses a child's ideational skills based on his or her ability to demonstrate recognition of object affordances. The child is presented with an object and asked to show the examiner all the things he or she can think of to do with the object within a 5-min time limit. Scoring criteria for the TIP is based on an analysis of the object-action affordances provided by the test object. Results demonstrated that the TIP can detect developmental differences among age groups and gender. Interrater reliability using the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) was .87.
