For each of the three different assessments of cognitive ability you have selected, describe the theoretical framework upon which each assessment is based, the typical uses for each assessment, and the target population(s) for each assessment. Discuss each instrument's reliability and validity, as well as administration considerations and costs to either the user or to the organization administering the assessment.
