Overview: Assess cognitive abilities of adults with a comprehensive screening test
Age Range: 20 through 89 years
Completion Time: 60 minutes
Norms: Index Scores, Process Scores, or a combination of both
Publication Date: 2000
The Kaplan Baycrest Neurocognitive Assessment™ (KBNA™) gives you important information for a general overview, in-depth diagnosis, or treatment planning and monitoring. The test combines behavioral neurology and traditional neuropsychological approaches to assessment.
KBNA evaluates the major areas of cognition:
- Immediate Memory – Recall
- Delayed Memory – Recall
- Delayed Memory – Recognition
- Verbal Fluency
- Spatial Processing
- Reasoning/Conceptual Shifting
Results are presented as standard scores for the Indexes and as percentile categories of low, medium, and high risk of cognitive impairment for the Process Scores.
Useful Clinical Studies
KBNA is correlated with the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence™ (WASI™), providing valuable clinical information about the effect of general cognitive ability on KBNA subtests. KBNA is also correlated with a variety of commonly used neuropsychological tests, including the California Verbal Learning Test® (CVLT®), the California Verbal Learning Test®—Second Edition (CVLT®–II), and the Boston Naming Test.
KBNA allows examiners to choose among a general overview of cognition by calculating Index Scores only, a detailed analysis of neurocognitive functioning by also calculating Process Scores, or a combination of both. The Process Scores help you break down an examinee's performance into component processes, making it easier to identify strengths and weaknesses, reach a diagnosis, plan treatment, and document improvement over time.
Scoring is Easy
Normative Data Profile Sheets eliminate norms tables and provide all normative information for each of the seven age groups.
