Please can you add some context about what the scores are and what they mean.

Are you finding it helpful?

I've had a quick look at a few of the links. Bit annoying they don't appear to have any mention of Dyspraxia (or DCD) on their site!
They look like a US org so suspect it could be lumped under ADHD? (Rhetorical question mark there}
Were/are these free tests or paid for?

They were paid for . You can pay monthly, yearly or three yearly .

Looks like it could be handy ammo if you thought your boss was discriminating against you?

Surely you're not advertising though...

It was purely to show where the test results were coming from . That remark you made could be seen as being inflammatory .

It was I who asked for context of what results meant. I do not deem this to be advertising nor do I believe Pixiewithdocs cooment was intended to inflame.

I fear a bad employer would probably take little notice of online test results.

This ccompany appear to have professional standing and advertise that they have some big clients. If they'd created an account and posted without asking I might be miffed. However, I'm confident this is not the case here.

After being on their site for a while, doing their brain training games , I wouldn't recommend it . That's not because the games are bad , but because the scoring leaves a lot to be desired . There can be large moves up or down within a short period of time that makes little sense .

Depending on the category, that's actually not too unusual for Dyspraxic people. We are nothing if not wildly inconsistent at times, especially with motor skills or spatial awareness. So depending on the person they could range from amazing to awful, even on the same day.

However, if their tests are actually flawed, then they absolutely should be avoided. It would be less than ideal for the confidence of the test taker getting a poor score because the test failed them.

Well they give your cognitive age vs your real age . My real age is 63 . My cognitive age has ranged from 55 to 67 ! My spatial awareness is consistently poor .

That doesn't sound like too wild of a variation unless they claim to be super accurate. I'd probably range between 25 amd 35 based on time of day.
