The purpose of this research was to test the validity of the Psychological Processing Checklist (PPC) against the Cognitive Assessment System (CAS). The participants of this study consisted of 30 first grade students, 11 girls and 19 boys whose ages ranged from 6 years 6 months to 7 years 11 months and their teachers from Monroe Township, New Jersey. Each child was evaluated with the Psychological Processing Checklist by their teacher and the Cognitive Assessment System by the researcher. The full scale raw scores, the full scale percentile ranks and the subscales of the two tests were then compared using the Pearson r. The results of the analysis of data showed significant negative relationships between the full scale raw scores, the full scale percentile ranks and the subscale raw scores of the Cognitive Assessment System and the Psychological Processing Checklist with one exception, the attention subscale raw scores, indicating that the Psychological Processing Checklist is a valid test of psychological (cognitive) processing.
