LUTZ, Fla., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coaches who need to determine which players are ready to tackle leadership roles have a new tool when making game-time decisions -- the Test of General Reasoning Ability™ (TOGRA™). Written by respected author Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD, the TOGRA is ideal for use when a speeded measure of reasoning ability and problem solving under pressure is needed. The TOGRA can be administered by a qualified professional in a group setting, saving precious evaluation and decision-making time, and making it quick and affordable to evaluate an entire team simultaneously.
Requiring just 16 minutes for administration and 2-3 minutes for scoring, the TOGRA is useful when evaluating athletes' decision-making capabilities and making determinations as to their suitability for various roles on a team. A rapid, reliable, and easily obtained measure of general aptitude, the TOGRA provides an overall estimate of mental skill. Consisting of items that assess verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills, the TOGRA uses tasks that are both inductive and deductive in nature. Two equivalent forms enable users to retest or monitor progress without the concern of practice effects, making the TOGRA an excellent tool for pre- and post-concussion evaluations.
Published by PAR, Inc., the TOGRA can be used with individuals age 10-75 years to more fully assess reasoning abilities and problem-solving under pressure. The TOGRA will soon be available on PARiConnect, PAR's online assessment platform for online administration, scoring, and interpretation.
To learn more about the TOGRA, visit www.parinc.com, or call PAR Customer Support at 1.800.331.8378.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
