The CIFA, a test of ideational fluency, requires the examinee to generate verbal or visuoconstruction material as quickly as possible while adhering to specified rules (i.e., letter or category cues, designs consisting of certain elements). Success on these tasks requires speeded productivity as well as the skills of self-monitoring, working memory, strategy generation, and creative or divergent thinking. Comprising two subtests—Design Fluency and Verbal Fluency—the CIFA is helpful in the differential diagnosis of many neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, subcortical dementias, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury.
