Age Range:Adolescents and adults
Administration Time:30-120 minutes
Computerized Scoring:No
Description:Assesses cognitive abilities of head-injured patients. Subtests include Perception/Discrimination, Orientation, Organization, Recall, and Reasoning. Results can be used to establish the severity of the injury and to chart progress during recovery. Items progress in difficulty to levels that some normal adults do not typically master. Thus, patients who functioned at very high levels prior to their injuries can continue to be measured with the same instrument as they regain the use of higher level abilities (such as complex organization and abstract reasoning).
