Clock Drawing Test (CDT)


Purpose of the measure
The CDT is used to quickly assess
visuospatial and praxis abilities, and may determine the presence of
both attention and executive dysfunctions (Adunsky, Fleissig,
Levenkrohn, Arad, & Nov, 2002; Suhr, Grace, Allen, Nadler, &
McKenna, 1998; McDowell, & Newell, 1996).

The CDT may be used in addition to other quick screening tests such
as the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), and the
Functional Independence Measure (FIM).
