This normative system is designed to help you interpret results from the tests in an expanded Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery.

  • Provides test score corrections based on age, gender, education, and race/ethnicity for more than 50 test measures, including core Halstead-Reitan measures; lateralized sensorimotor and psychomotor Halstead-Reitan measures; and additional tests of executive functions, attention, memory, spatial, verbal/academic, and motor skills.
  • Improves neurodiagnostic accuracy by providing simultaneous corrections for demographic variables that can relate significantly to test performance: age, education, gender, and race/ethnicity.
  • Demographically corrected norms substantially increase the probability of correctly identifying individuals who have or do not have brain disorders.
  • Converts raw scores on diverse tests to a common score metric—important when you need to compare an individual’s test results with normal expectations based on that person’s demographic characteristics, it also helps you analyze an individual’s patterns of strengths and deficits across tests.
  • Includes the new Global Deficit Score, which reflects the number and severity of impaired performances on the expanded HRB.

Scoring software produces unlimited reports

The scoring program facilitates the scoring and profiling of an expanded Halstead-Reitan Battery.

  • After the examiner provides basic demographic and raw score information, the software automatically computes the T scores and deficit scores (including the Global Deficit Score, which considers all major test measures in the battery).
  • The program classifies each score qualitatively and graphically displays all sets of variables.
  • You can choose which normative sample (African American or Caucasian) to use for report and profile generation.
  • Makes it easy to compare profiles from a client’s previous administration to profiles from a current one.
