Q1. Is this test standardized?
A1. No. While this is a future goal of this test, it is not currently standardized.
Q2. What are the scoring procedures?
A2. The app scores the test as you go along, so there are no specific procedures that the therapist is responsible for at the conclusion of the test. The answer is either correct or incorrect. For questions requiring recall of a list or multiple answers, a criterion is provided and is included on the same page with the directions and the question. The criterion is different depending on the question.
Q3. What types of responses are required by the client?
A3. This depends on the test you decide to give. Some responses are verbal, some are pointing at a picture, some are eye gaze.
Q4. What client functions are assessed, and how are they assessed?
A4. There are 10 tests: Memory, receptive, expressive, mixed (receptive and expressive), pragmatics, executive function, non-verbal, reading, writing, and motor speech. There are many different types of questions depending on the type of test and the difficulty of that question. Additionally, there is a Bedside Dysphagia Evaluation that can be chosen prior to the testing.
Q5. Is there a procedural manual for examination?
A5. The directions are on the page with the question so the examiner does not need to reference anything externally.
Q6. Is there any research to back this test?
A6. Research references are provided here.
Q7. I downloaded new evaluations, but I can't find them
A7. They should appear in settings. Next to 'Add Additional Evals' you will see the remaining number of evaluations.
Q8: Can I edit the final report?
A8: Yes and No. The document is emailed as a pdf. PDF's can easily be converted to a word file using Adobe software. Once it's converted, you will be able to edit. You cannot edit within the app- at least not yet! Link provided below!
Q9. I forgot the four digits required to unlock the app but I answered my security question! I'm locked out of the app! Help!
A9: By default when you register, the first letter is capitalized. However, when you tap ‘Forgot?’ to answer the security question, by default, the first letter is lower case. So it is case-sensitive. Try the security question with the first letter being capitalized.
Q10. I have questions that are not answered here!
