Psychometrically Sound Test of EF Including Problem Solving and Mental Flexibility


The NAB Executive Functions Module provides a marker of planning, engaging with others effectively, problem solving, successfully interacting with the environment to ensure one’s needs are met, judgment, conceptualization, cognitive response set, mental flexibility, verbal fluency, and generativity.

Features and benefits

  • The NAB is a comprehensive and conormed assessment that offers the combined strengths of both a flexible and fixed battery to allow clinicians to focus on specific areas of concern.
  • All NAB tests were standardized on the same sample of more than 1,400 healthy adults.
  • Extensive validation evidence has been established through both exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses, criterion validity investigations, and several clinical validation studies. Additional validity studies included a comparison of the NAB with measures of functional independence in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital and an investigation involving a group of simulated malingerers who received the NAB, along with several existing measures of symptom validity.
  • In-Person e-Stimulus Books and Kits are convenient, more hygienic alternatives to paper administration that allow you to administer the NAB face-to-face via tablet. Be sure to download our new white paper prior to administering.
