The profusion of Q's

This blog has had plenty of information on Q-interactive, which is the iPad software that provides WAIS-IV and WISC. But there is more than one Q out there. Pearson also has an internet-based test administration platform called Q-global. The prices are similarly structured, including per-use or per-year subscription.

There are a few tests on this platform that may be of interest to us.

The most interesting one from my perspective is Alloway Working Memory Assessment - an automated on-screen working memory battery for ages 5-79 There is also an older PC-based version of this test. Has anybody out there used it and could provide their impression in the comments? I'd love to hear about its validity and reliability.

Other interesting tests on Q-global include Delis-Rating of Executive Function and Woodcock Reading Mastery Test for those poor souls among us that have to include an assessment of academic ability in their testing (been there, done that, got the scars to prove it).

I was wondering if anybody out there had experience with Q-global and can give us a review.

Cheers,
Izabela
