Short Parallel Assessments of Neuropsychological Status - Extended (SPANS-X)

SPANS-X is a brief, yet comprehensive battery of neuropsychological tests for accurate cognitive measurement.

For those already familiar with SPANS, the 'X' in 'SPANS-X' stands for extended, extra, and exceptional utility; it’s a bigger, bolder, and more precise assessment of acquired brain injury, dementia, and other neurological and neuropsychological disorders.

How does SPANS-X compare to other assessments?

  • Applies more recent norms, and a norm per age from 18 to 90 years, calculated using an innovative polynomial regression process
  • Includes a greater number of briefer subtests, plus more subtests per index score. This combination delivers more internally reliable index scores and higher levels of engagement
  • SPANS-X can be administered remotely via video call or face to face for greater flexibility
  • Has better alternate-version test-retest reliability across all index scores
  • SPANS-X offers two equivalent versions in one kit for more cost-effective parallel testing
  • Provides a wider variety of observations, including screening for more neurological conditions
