Test of Everyday Attention for Children, Second Edition (TEA-Ch2)

Tom Manly, Vicki Anderson, John Crawford, Melanie George, Mette Underbjerg, Ian H Robertson

TEA-Ch2 is the new edition of the gold-standard test for attention, which uniquely measures separable aspects of attention. TEA-Ch2 has been updated to make the testing process more fun and engaging for the child.

New features and updates include:

  • A shorter and more user-friendly tool using a unique combination of both paper-based and computerised tests
  • Comic format for administration with certificate and stickers to engage children in shared fun activity with examiner
  • Shorter, simpler age appropriate version for the younger children (TEA-Ch2J) and a longer version for the older children (TEA-Ch 2A)
  • General attention index and selective and sustained attention indices capturing core abilities
  • Large normative sample representative of the UK population
  • Extension down to 5-year olds

TEA-Ch2 will be particularly useful for use with children who have known or suspected problems with attention; to tell apart different patterns of strengths and weaknesses in cognition; inform interventions and monitor outcomes.

Designed for use by clinical, educational and child psychologists. It can also be used by academic researchers and other health/care professionals who have appropriate training in test administration and interpretation.

New and Improved Psychometric Properties UK standardisation carried out on:

  • 621 children aged 8 years to 15 years and
  • 394 children aged 5 years to 7 years.

Standardisation sample matched to 2011 census data for age, sex, SES and ethnicity to ensure the diverse population is represented.


General attention index and selective and sustained attention indices.

Regression based norms provide percentile ranks with scaled scores for subtests (M=10, SD=3) and percentile ranks with standard scores for indices (M=100, SD=15).

Reliability and Validity

  • Studies on clinical samples (paediatric neurology referrals and ADHD Clinic) provide evidence to support validity
  • Test-retest studies and Inter-item correlation procedures provide evidence to support reliability Test Structure Age 8 years to 15 years
