The NAB Writing Test was created to quantify several major features of narrative writing, including legibility, syntax, spelling, and conveyance of themes. Unlike other writing tests that simply ask the examinee to write a single sentence, the NAB Writing Test provides a more complete sample of the many types of deficits associated with agraphia. The measure presents examinees with a colourful stimulus picture printed on a panel card and asks the examinee to write about what is going on in the scene. Scoring is relatively simple, yet provides sensitive markers of legibility, syntax, spelling and conveyance, increasing the likelihood of identifying possible deficits.
- The detailed Record Form guides examiners through the measure. The Record Form and Panel Card are all that is necessary for administration, allowing optimal portability and flexibility in a variety of evaluation settings.
- Two equivalent, parallel forms allow for ease of retesting and reduce the likelihood of practice effects.
- The NAB Writing Test is one of six tests in the NAB Language Module, which serves as a marker of the severity of aphasia and related disorders of language production, comprehension and word-finding.
