The purpose of this study was to cross-validate subscales of computerized test batteries developed for the assessment and management of sports-related concussion, as well as to validate these subscales against select long-standing paper-based measures. In order to examine concurrent validity, we administered 3 such computerized measures, CogSport, ImPACT, and HeadMinder, along with more established paper-based measures, the Trail Making Tests and the Digit Symbol subtest of the Wechsler scale… Expand
EXAMINATION OF THE CONSTRUCT VALIDITY OF IMPACT TM COMPUTERIZED TEST, TRADITIONAL,
Although computerized neuropsychological screening is becoming a standard for sports concussion identification and management, convergent validity studies are limited. Such studies are important forExpand
Convergent and discriminant validity of the ImPACT with traditional neuropsychological measures
TLDR
V validity problems render the interpretability of the ImPACT composites somewhat questionable, and more research is necessary prior to using the ImpACT for assessment of clinical populations. Expand
Examination of the Construct Validity of Impact™ Computerized Test, Traditional, and Experimental Neuropsychological Measures
TLDR
In this healthy sample the correlations between the domains covered by ImPACT™ and the neuropsychological battery supports ImPact™ as a useful screening tool for assessing many of the cognitive factors related to mTBI, but the data suggest other sources of data need to be considered when identifying and managing concussions. Expand
Adolescent Subtest Norms for the ImPACT Neurocognitive Battery
TLDR
Normative data are provided on each of the subtests used to calculate the composite scores of ImPACT that may be helpful in the interpretation of the ImPact clinical report and further delineation of areas of neurocognitive dysfunction. Expand
The utility of instrumented dual-task gait and tablet-based neurocognitive measurements after concussion.
TLDR
Relatively simple quantitative measurements of dual-task gait and reaction time may be useful and portable clinical tests in the multifaceted assessment of concussion. Expand
Discriminant Construct Validity of ImPACT™: A Companion Study
TLDR
The apparent lack of discriminability between three of four composite scores in this sample raises questions about using ImPACT™ composite scores to support specific construct-oriented interpretations. Expand
Clinical test instrument development to identify and track recovery from concussion.
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to discuss the clinical use of neuropsychological testing in concussion management, the methods used for evaluating and monitoring recovery following concussion, the characteristics of current assessment instruments, and additional clinical factors and approaches for concussion assessment and management. Expand
A Comparison of Four Computerized Neurocognitive Assessment Tools to a Traditional Neuropsychological Test Battery in Service Members with and without Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Though the results are not overly promising for the validity of the four NCATs investigated, traditional methods of investigating psychometric properties may not be appropriate for computerized tests. Expand
The reliability findings of a novel computerized neurocognitive assessment with the potential to be used to identify mild traumatic brain injuries
Computerized neurocognitive tests (CNT) are quick objective assessments used to assess an individual’s recovery from a concussion. However, CNT are not presently used during a pitch-side diagnosis ofExpand

TLDR
Two methods of statistical analysis for assessing change from baseline were compared to establish a psychometric basis for return-to-play decision-making: the Reliable Change Index (RCI) and multiple regression. Expand
Validity of ImPACT for Measuring Processing Speed Following Sports-Related Concussion
TLDR
It appears as if the Processing Speed Composite, Reaction Time Composite, and SDMT are measuring a similar underlying construct in this sample of concussed amateur athletes. Expand
Applications of Computer-based Neuropsychological Assessment
TLDR
Beyond ease of administration and data collection, computer-based assessment offers benefits over paper-and-pencil measures in the form of millisecond timing accuracy, reliable and randomized presentation of stimuli over multiple trials and repeat administrations, and unobtrusive measurement of cognitive skills and response times during all aspects of the assessment process. Expand
CogSport: Reliability and Correlation with Conventional Cognitive Tests Used in Postconcussion Medical Evaluations
TLDR
CogSport is a highly reliable cognitive function test when administered to healthy young adults and elite athletes and some measures also displayed high correlations with conventional neuropsychological tests of information processing and attention. Expand
Computerised cognitive assessment of concussed Australian Rules footballers
TLDR
Increased variability in response time may be an important cognitive deficit after concussion in injured athletes, which has implications for consistency of an athlete's performance after injury, as well as for tests used in clinical assessment and follow up of head injuries. Expand
Monitoring Resolution of Postconcussion Symptoms in Athletes: Preliminary Results of a Web-Based Neuropsychological Test Protocol.
TLDR
Preliminary data indicate that the Concussion Resolution Index may be a useful method for athletic trainers and other professionals to expeditiously track resolution of symptoms after sport-related concussion. Expand
Concussion in contact sports: reliable change indices of impairment and recovery.
TLDR
It was found that 16 of the 20 concussed professional rugby league players were impaired 1-3 days following injury, and it was demonstrated that 7 players still displayed cognitive deficits at 1-2 weeks, before returning to preseason levels at 3-5 weeks. Expand
Test-retest reliability of the halstead-reitan battery and the WAIS in a neuropsychiatric population
Abstract Data are presented concerning the test-retest reliability of the Halstead-Reitan battery and the WAIS in a heterogeneous neuropsychiatric sample of 150 patients. Relative reliability orExpand
Relation between subjective fogginess and neuropsychological testing following concussion
TLDR
Athletes with any degree of self-reported fogginess at one-week post injury are likely to have adverse effects from their concussions in multiple domains. Expand
Relationship between concussion and neuropsychological performance in college football players.
TLDR
It is suggested that neuropsychological assessment is a useful indicator of cognitive functioning in athletes and that both history of multiple concussions and learning disability are associated with reduced cognitive performance. Expand
