Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The Computerized Alternating Attention Test (CAAT) assesses alternating attention regularly in clinic and follow-up assessments in patients with schizophrenia. When performing the CAAT, subjects were required to alternately judge two types of rules: digit and shape. A shorter time for completing the CAAT indicates better alternating attention. Our validation of CAAT indicated that the CAAT had the acceptable test-retest agreement, negligible practice effect, and acceptable concurrent validity.
