Psychological assessments are evaluations by psychologists that are based on standardized test methods, interviews and observation. Depending on the aim of the test, the cognitive capacity of the client, i.e. the intelligence, the ability profile, i.e. the intelligence structure, social and emotional functioning, personality or mental health/well-being are all possible to evaluate. The ability profile or intelligence structure, shows the level of the different cognitive areas; linguistic, visual, visual-motoric and executive abilities, in relation to each other, and thus points out the cognitive strenghts and weaknesses of the client.
