Uses of Neuropsychological Assessments
-Describing and identifying changes in psychological function -Determining the biological correlates of test results -Determining whether changes are associated with neurological disease, psychiatric conditions, developmental disorders, or nonneurological conditions -Assessing changes over time and developing a prognosis -Offering guidelines for rehabilitation, vocational and/or educational planning -Providing guidelines and education to family and caregivers. -Planning for discharge and treatment implementations
Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Battery (HRB)
a fixed set of eight tests used to evaluate brain and nervous system functioning in individuals aged 15 years and older. Children's versions are the Halstead Neuropsychological Test Battery for Older Children (ages nine to 14) and the Reitan Indiana Neuropsychological Test Battery (ages five to eight). Assesses for brain damage
Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery (LNNB)
appropriate for people aged 13 and older and takes between 90 and 150 minutes to complete. It consists of 269 items in the following 11 clinical scales: reading writing arithmetic visual memory expressive language receptive language motor function rhythm tactile intellectual Scores for three summary scales can also be calculated: pathognomonic, right hemisphere, and left hemisphere. A children's version of the battery, called the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery for Children (LNNB-C), appropriate for children aged eight to 12, is also available.
Boston Process Approach (BPA)
examines the process by which the patient solves a problem rather than simply looking at the patient's numerical scores. The Boston Process also tailors which tests to give a patient instead of administering an entire test battery to every subject, regardless of their condition.
A z-score is an individual score from a population that has been standardized by subtracting the mean and dividing by the SD of the population. A z-score of 0 = the mean of the population, a z-score of -1 is 1 SD below the mean, and a z-score of 2.3 is 2.3 SD above the mean.
Standard Deviation
Square root of the variance of a sample or population, most commonly used to measure the variability of a distribution. Measuring the typical (standard) difference (deviation) from the mean sample or population.
Mean of 50, SD of 10. A t-score of 65 is above average, and 1.5 SD above the mean.
Percentage of people who score at or below the given percentile score given on the test.
Standard Scores v. Raw Scores
SS are computed based on age and subtest for most standardized measures. Raw scores are used to compute SS, but vary based on age/level. SS are used because they can be more easily computed into IQ ranges, and are easier to understand in comparision to one another. (A low raw score may not compute to a low SS, which would impact the over all indecies or FSIQ scores)
Effect Size
Measure of the impact of the experimental manipulations. Used to measure the effect of an intervention.
Similar results over time
Measures what is claims to measure
Type I errors
Rejecting a null hypothesis when it is true
Type II errors
Accepting a null hypothesis when it is false.
Measures the relationship between two variables.
Correlation =
Sum of ZsubX times ZsubY, over N
Usually means increasing number and types of participants. Increase reliability and validity.
