This presentation, the second of six in a symposia addressing testing of the NDB model, will focus on measurement issues in the assessment of cognitive functioning of nursing home residents with dementia. We are testing dimensions of cognition, memory, visuospatial skills, attention and language using a panel of four instruments: The Mini-Mental Status Exam (MMSE), The Severe Impairment Battery (SIB), the Functional Language and Cognition Instrument (FLCI) and the Arizona Battery of Communication Disorder (ABCD). Major concerns that have challenged us as we work with our first residents include 1) instrument overlap 2) subject ability and fatigue 3) consistency in administration and scoring of testing across three projects. The decisions we have made and the techniques we are using to maintain the integrity of testing while minimizing subject burden and maximizing inter-project reliability will be presented.
