Assessment, v5 n1 p13-18 Mar 1998
Two interpretations of the Boston Naming Test (BNT) (E. Kaplan, H. Goodglass, and S. Weintraub, 1983) discontinuation rule of six consecutive failures were found in BNT use with 655 normal older adults and 140 people with Alzheimer's disease. Differences between lenient and rigorous interpretations of responses could have impact on neuropsychological assessment. (SLD)
