Description: The Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System (D-KEFS) Scoring Assistant provides an automated test administration and scoring system for the D-KEFS test, a neuropsychological test used to measure a variety of verbal and nonverbal executive functions for both children and adults (ages 8 - 89 years). D-KEFS consists of nine stand-alone tests that assess mild brain damage in the frontal lobes. The tests are used to determine how deficits in higher order thinking may impact an individual`s functioning. Test results can be used by clinicians to develop coping strategies and rehabilitation programs tailored towards and individual`s profile of strengths and weaknesses in executive functions.
