Free and cued selective reminding test: MOANS norms

J Clin Exp Neuropsychol. 1997 Oct;19(5):676-91. doi: 10.1080/01688639708403753.


Age-adjusted norms are presented for persons age 56-98 years on the Free and Cued Selective Reminding Test (FCSRT; Buschke, 1984; Grober & Buschke, 1987). These data were obtained via several research projects that are known collectively as Mayo's Older Americans Normative Studies (MOANS). These norms should be useful when the FCSRT is used as a "stand alone" test. They should also promote accuracy in the comparison of any person's FCSRT performance against his or her functioning on any other tests with MOANS norms. The unique features of the FCSRT are discussed. These norms will, hopefully, enhance the utility of the test when it is used in clinical and research investigations of various amnestic disorders.
