Abstract

Many instruments are available to augment assessment of psychiatric patients. There is little comparative information regarding reliability and validity of these tools on assessing treatment needs, in predicting future behavior, and in classifying psychiatric patients. The purpose of the descriptive study was to provide comparative information on the Nosie-30, Pardue-Dick and the Revised Allen Cognitive Level Test. A significant correlation was found between the total Nosie-30 and the Pardue-Dick and between the Revised ACL and the Nosie-30. The scores on the Pardue-Dick and the R-ACL were not related.
