The NAB Orientation Test evaluates impaired orientation, one of the most common symptoms of a variety of brain disorders and an important aspect of attention. A brief 16-item measure, the test consists of questions relating to self, time, place, and situation. The test provides four descriptive scores for each facet of orientation.
