Trail Making Test

Submitted by administrator on

A test assessing organized visual search, planning, attention, set shifting, cognitive flexibility, and divided attention (Rabin, Barr, & Butler, 2005), all capacities thought to be executive in nature. Originally developed by Partington (Brown & Partington, 1942), it was first published as part of the Army Individual Test Battery (1984). The test is currently available in public domain (see Lezak, Howieson, Loring, Hannay, & Fischer, 2004; Strauss, Sherman, & Spreen, 2006). The standard trail-making test (TMT) contains two parts: Trails A and Trails B, which usually takes no more than 5–10 min to complete.
