Normative psychometric test data for computerized
neuro-cognitive batteries are scare in the South African testing literature.
The research explores the psychometric test properties of a computerized
neuropsychological test battery in a non-clinical South African sample. A
non-experimental correlational design was employed to collect data (N=594) and
assess internal consistency indices on a number of executive and emotions
tasks. The study also investigated the potential effect
that certain socio-demographic factors may have on neuropsychological
performance indicators and included motherís education, fatherís education,
language used in high school, home language and quality of education. In
keeping with current research it was found that even though socio-demographic
factors do play a role in test performance, the psychometric properties of the
battery remain consistent across different groups and further research
utilising this tool is encouraged as the battery evidences construct validity.
