The NAB Screening Module helps to generate initial hypothesis 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.
Average alpha coeffiecients for test scores from both Form 1 and Form 2 of the Screening Module range from moderate to strong. Composite reliabilities are high for all the Screening Module Domain scores (e.g. Screening Attention Domain r +.91: Screening Executive Functions r = .86), and the Total Screening Index (.80). Over a six month interval, test-retest stability of the Screening Module test and domain scores also is strong.
To examine convergent validity, a subgroup of the Standardisation sample was assessed with external measures of cognitive functioning including the Mini-Metal State Examination (MMSE) and selected scores from the Repeatable Battery of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS).
Among a sample of patients with dementia, the Screening Attention Domain score correlate strongly with the Dementia Rating Scale-2 (DRS-2) Attention Scale Score (r = .84). In a separate study, the Screen Language Domain was found to correlate strongly (r = .78) with the Boston Naming Test (BNT) among patients with aphasia.
