Choose from 33 Neuropsychological Tests When Needing to Assess Adults for Neurocognitive Dysfunction


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. 

What's Available

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.

The NAB Main Modules Score Report and the NAB Screening Module Score Report are on PARiConnect.


Ten Innovative Features of the NAB

  1. Feature Screening for both impaired and normal performance (“dual-screening capability”)
  2. Comprehensive coverage of functional domains
  3. Combined strengths of flexible and fixed battery approaches to assessment
  4. Avoidance of floor and ceiling effects
  5. Reduced administration time
  6. Entire battery normed on a single standardization group (“coordinated norming”)
  7. Demographically corrected norms based on age, education level, and sex
  8. Provision of an equivalent/parallel form
  9. Increased user-friendliness for both examiner and examinee
  10. Focus on ecological validity

Features and benefits

  • The NAB may be purchased by individual module kits versus packaged as a complete battery. Certain NAB tests are available for stand-alone purchase as well. 
  • Each of the 33 NAB tests has two equivalent, parallel forms that were created and normed simultaneously to facilitate reevaluation while avoiding practice effects.
  • Each of the five domain-specific NAB Modules includes a Daily Living test designed to be multifactorial in nature and related to real-world tasks of everyday living in order to evaluate constructs such as auditory and reading comprehension, simple calculations, problem-solving, and decisional capacity. The new NAB Daily Living test combines these five tests into one easy-to-use form.


PAR Training 

  • The NAB Video Training Program is designed to facilitate correct administration and scoring procedures for the NAB. Each chapter includes an overview of the specific test followed by a demonstration of a standard administration. 


Note: If you are purchasing a NAB module kit—with the exception of the Screening Module—we strongly recommend that you also purchase the NAB Administration, Scoring, and Interpretation Manual (Item #5088–TM) and the NAB Demographically Corrected Norms Manual (Item #5091–TM).

A study in The Clinical Neuropsychologist had this to say about the NAB.

"...the NAB is generally comparable to traditional language and visuospatial measures, and it sufficiently detects attention and executive deficits."
