RBANS Supplementary Analysis

Program: RBANS_Supplementary_Analysis.exe

This computer program for PCs accompanies the paper: Crawford, J. R., Garthwaite, P. H., Morrice, N., & Duff, K. (in press). Some supplementary methods for the analysis of the RBANS. Psychological Assessment.

The program is for use with RBANS Index scores and performs the following supplementary analyses of these scores: (a) quantifying the number of abnormally low index scores and abnormally large Index score differences exhibited by a case and accompanying this with estimates of the percentages of the normative population expected to exhibit at least this number of low scores and large differences; (b) estimating the overall abnormality of a case’s index score profile using the Mahalanobis Distance Index (MDI); (c) expressing confidence limits on a case’s scores in the form of percentile ranks; (d) reporting confidence limits on differences between a case’s Index scores; and (e) offering the option of applying a sequential Bonferroni correction when testing for reliable differences. The methods can be applied when only a subset of the Index scores have been administered.
