Abstract

The emergence of the sociocultural perspective in cross-cultural psychology has discouraged the adaptation of standardized tests in nonindustrialized settings. Yet, cognitive assessments are needed for monitoring the effects of nutritional, health, and educational interventions. Forty-seven Lao children 5 to 12 years of age completed the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC), the Tactual Performance Test (TPT), and the computerized Tests of Variables of Attention (TOVA). TPTperformance measures were related to physical (nutritional) development, whereas the K-ABC global cognitive ability indicators were sensitive to parental education and quality of home environment. TOVA performance was related to K-ABC global performance and TPT memory, suggesting that these measures are at least partially undergirded by attentional ability. Sociocultural concerns aside, these findings suggest that validated neuropsychological and cognitive assessments can be adapted that effectively tap basic and universal brain-behavior traits.
