Make Trails Test


CogQuiz’s provides norms for children to older adults (age range 5 to 89 and an N = 708). The descriptive statistics are broken out in five year cohorts for the child to young adult (5 to 19 years of age) and ten year cohorts for the young adult to elderly.

About:

The Trail Making Test (TMT), originally devised in 1938, was known as the “Partington’s Pathways Test,” or “Divided Attention Test” (Partington & Leiter, 1949). It was initially part of a battery of tests (Army Individual Test Battery) used to assess “…a variety of intellectual functions different from those measured by the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence Scale.” (Spreen & Strauss, 1998). The test is not typically part of a test battery but administered single in its original paper and pencil form.

Measure:

The TMT provides a measure of attention, visual scanning, speed of eye-hand coordination (Part A), and mental flexibility (Strauss, Sherman, & Spreen, 2007). In addition, Part B assesses the ability to alternate between stimulus sets and as such is a measure of “executive function” (Mitrushina, et al., 1999). Performance on the TMT has been obtained for normal and various clinical populations such as Attention Deficit Disorder ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to name a few.

Description

The TMT and its several variants require the Participant to, in the correct order, link together an array of objects that are labeled in a way indicating a specific order (e.g., numerical, alphabetical). Part A of the TMT contains an array of 25 circles containing the numbers 1 to 25. By clicking the numbered bubbles, the test-taker creates a line from the circle containing the number 1 to the circle containing the number 2 and then to the circle containing the number 3 and so on until he/she reaches the circle containing the number 25. In Part B the test-taker is required to alternate between numbers and letters (e.g., the sequence of 1, A, 2, B, 3, C,…)
