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.

The Screening Module streamlines the assessment process by providing scores that quickly let you know whether further assessment should be conducted. It also helps to generate initial hypotheses regarding differential diagnosis and treatment recommendations and provides an estimate of the examinee’s functioning in a particular domain when more in-depth examination is either not warranted or not possible.

Psychometrically sound

  • 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.
