Test Barcelona-2: Introduction, administration and scoring

The Barcelona Test is a general neuropsychological assessment instrument widely used in clinical practice and research. The new version, Test Barcelona-2, involves a radical update of the fundamentals of neuropsychology: a new functional brain model is introduced and the outdated approach focused on the cerebral cortex is abandoned. In addition, Internet technologies are introduced in management, scoring, psychometrics and reporting.

The Barcelona Test-2 represents a great update of the previous version: update of the functional systems of the tests, redesign of materials, rationalization of variables, expansion and re-conceptualization of psychometry, inclusion of neuropsychiatric and functional evaluations , among other novelties.

This course aims to provide basic knowledge about the Barcelona-2 test in terms of updating, objectives, content, administration and scoring. It is, fundamentally, about providing the necessary knowledge for the administration of the test in its conventional and electronic versions.

This course is complemented by the Advanced Course that we will launch in the fall:
Test Barcelona-2: interpretation (neuropsychological semiology and pathology).
