Print this page. Let a friend or family member administer this test or do it with a loved one. Score 1 point for each wrong answer and enter under errors. Keep in mind the maximum number or errors for each question. Multiply the number of errors by the given weight. Then add each score to come to the final score.
Total score can range from 0 (no mistakes) to 28 (all wrong).
A score greater than 10 is usually consistent with significant memory problems.
