Card Sort Test


About:

CogQuiz’s card sorting test like other sorting tests might be administered to individuals with brain injury (e.g., TBI, stroke, etc.), neurological/neurodegenerative disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.), psychological/mental disorders (e.g., schizophrenia, depression, etc.), or to assess development in children and decline in elderly.

Measure:

Card sorting tests measure cognitive flexibility by assessing the test taker’s ability to switch a response strategy when the rules for responding along a dimension change (e.g., size, location, etc.). These tests allow mental health professionals to assess planning strategy, inhibition of responding, shift strategy in response to performance feedback, and working memory as reflected by holding task relevant information in conscious awareness.

Description

In normal individuals, the task is a measure of cognitive flexibility. We provide several normed response parameters for individuals from 5 to 89 years of age. Results from the CogQuiz card sorting tests administered alone or without input or supervision from a licensed mental health specialist are not valid for assessing brain or cognitive function.
