Cognitive Domain in Standardized Tests

Cognitive Domain in Standardized Tests

When reading Horowitz’s and Siegler’s article, think of how the cognitive domain that appears to be “compartmentalized” in standardized tests is in fact linked to each one of the other domains, and most closely to language and communication, social and emotional skills. When listening to the Brains of Babes, notice how the neurological development of humans, beginning in infancy – and even more so, during conception – interrelates with –and is shaped by– all of the experiences of babies, infants and toddlers. Note the gradual progression of skill acquisition and how they are interdependent. In fact, many times you will notice how two “stages” are happening at the same time, especially during transition times in developmental milestone acquisition.
