Caveat: The table below aims to provide some guidance for supporting students with below average accuracy scores on particular CoPS subtests.

However, it should be borne in mind that interpreting the results from CoPS requires interpretation of the overall profile, and not just consideration of each individual subtest separately. Please see the CoPS manual (pages 48-91) for further support with the interpretation of profiles.

It is also important to consider the speed score. If a student has:

  • a below average accuracy score,
  • but an average / above average speed score

then it may be that the subtest has been rushed, in which case re-testing on that subtest would be recommended (see page 22 of the CoPS manual).
