The Robust Reliability of Neuropsychological Measures: Meta-Analyses of Test-Retest Correlations

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain the role and importance of test-retest reliability in interpreting the results of a neuropsychological assessment.

2. Identify how examinee factors (e.g., age and clinical diagnosis) and test factors (e.g. the type of construct being assessed, the use of alternate forms) are related to the magnitude of test-retest reliability coefficients.
