These findings corroborate those of Lindeboom et al.

vamcog Discreet differences were noticed in the ICC values for the subscale items after sex, age, and schooling stratification. The high reliability of the test-retest found in the present study suggests that the instrument has an excellent level of stability with time, for both the set of items tdst the test and for the majority of the items in the subscales.

The data was typed and analyzed using SPSS Int J Geriatr Psychiatry ; In the retests the agreement was nearly perfect for the set of items.

Rio de Janeiro, This finding can be partially explained by the fact that the punctuation of the items which constitute the subscale depends on the raters’ interpretation.


They were then divided in the following categories: Instrument application and the evaluated variables. It has incorporated a few screening instruments for cognitive disturbances widely used in epidemiological research, such as the Mini-Mental State Examination MMSE 6and 8 of the 10 items of the Hodgkinson Abbreviated Mental Test tes. Br J Psychiatry ; Arq Neuropsiquiatr ;59 Suppl 3: This study took place in a public geriatric outpatient clinic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

On retest invitation out of subjects returned. On the appointment day, the selected subjects were invited to participate in the study. The lack of a specific biological marker for the diagnosis of vamcog in the clinical practice amplifies the vitality of this evaluation 2. One hundred and twenty-three subjects took part in the test-retest study, while 60 of them participated in the interrater reliability study as well.

J Geriatr Psychiatry Neurol ; The stability of the total score of the instrument in time was adequate, tes after the stratification by sex, age, schooling, and the presence of dementia; the difference in the ICC scores for the test’ set of items and for most subscales was discreet, suggesting the instrument maintains its stability in time even in subjects with cognition teest.

When a subject answers one item correctly, it is expected that he or she would also be able to answer other items related to it correctly as well, because split cognition into cognitive domains is more didactical than anatomical, since the brain operates in a network where one area is intimately connected with the other Age Ageing ; The test-retest reliability was evaluated with a mean interval of The interrater reliability, which was evaluated using the ICC, proved to be high, varying from 0.


The functional evaluation consisted of applying both the evaluation scale of teat daily life basic activities 17 and camccog the daily life instrumental activities 18both in the subject as well as in the informant, with divergencies in the information written down and commented by the rater. camxog
