Psychiatry related information on Word Association Tests


High impact information on Word Association Tests

  • Two standardized neuropsychological word-generation tasks (controlled word-association tests: CFL and Animals) were then administered (4 minutes total) followed again by the two baseline procedures [3].
  • Measures of improvement included the DSM-IV ADHD Behavior Checklist for Adults, the Controlled Oral Word Association Test (COWAT, using the letters C, F, and L version), Stroop, and Digit Span (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale version) [4].
  • To identify components that contribute to word-fluency performance, 126 patients referred to a Memory Clinic for suspected cognitive impairment underwent a neuropsychological examination including the Controlled Oral Word Association test (FAS; Benton & Hamsher, 1976) [5].
  • Analyses of baseline scores indicate that girls outperform boys on selected measures of processing speed and executive functions [Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-III (WAIS-III) Digit Symbol, Trails B, and Controlled Oral Word Association Test (COWAT)] [6].
  • DESIGN, SETTING, SUBJECTS, OUTCOME MEASURES: A timed word-association test standardised and scored to assess the tendency for creative thinking was administered to 22 development programme students at the University of Cape Town. Results were compared with grades at the end of the academic year [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of Word Association Tests


Gene context of Word Association Tests

  • Neuropsychological tests employed were the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R), Bender-Gestalt, controlled oral word association test (COWAT), selected subtests of the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised, Purdue Peg Board, Stroop Test, Trail Making Test, Wide Range Achievement Test-Revised, and Achenbach Behavior Rating Scale [9].
  • The present data for the TAT and previous results for the word-association test and Rorschach support the hypothesis that the E-S gender combinations affect sexual responsivity on projective tests [10].
  • On executive control tests, IVD subjects made more preservations on tests of mental control and response set, and produced fewer responses on phonemic controlled oral word association tests (letters: F,A,S) [11].
