The Wisconsin Card Sorting Test measures executive functions understood as the functions of supervision, control, and management of human cognitive activity.

DESCRIPTION: The WCST consists of two packs of cards, 64 cards per pack. The respondent is to match each card in the pack with one of four model cards. Respondents define the sorting rule themselves, utilising feedback they receive after every answer.

RELIABILITY: Stability and congruent reliability were tested in the Polish standardization.

VALIDITY: Correlations with other measures of intellectual functioning were obtained in the Polish standardization.

NORMS: For adults aged 20-79 (Polish national sample).

APPLICATIONS: Assessment of cognitive functioning; validation data for the original version suggest that the WCST may be used in neuropsychological diagnosis.
