Biomedical Terminologies and Standards

Notes
Ages 3 to 85. It provides a highly reliable overall snapshot of general cognitive functioning. Higher scores indicate higher levels of cognitive functioning. A score at or near 100 indicates ability that is average compared with others nationally (the comparison will depend on which scale score is being discussed). Scores around 115 suggest above-average cognitive ability, while scores around 130 suggest superior ability (in the top 2 percent nationally, based on Toolbox normative data). Conversely, a score around 85 suggests below-average cognitive ability, and a score in the range of 70 or below suggests significant impairment, which may also be indicative of difficulties in school (for children) or general functioning

Guidelines/Instructions
Cognitive Function Composite tests includes Flanker, Dimensional Change Card Sort, Picture Sequence Memory, List Sorting, Pattern Comparison, Picture Vocabulary and Reading Tests This composite score is derived by averaging the normalized scores of each of the measures, then deriving scale scores based on this new distribution. An Age-Adjusted Scale Score, Fully Adjusted Scale Score, Unadjusted Scale Score and Age-Adjusted National Percentile are provided for the Cognitive Function Composite. No min/max value is provided.
