- Restricted Use: Level C- requires fulfillment of b-level qualifications, and users must have training and/or experience in the use of tests, and must have completed an advanced degree in an appropriate profession (e.g., psychology, psychiatry).

The DRS-2 measures cognitive function at lower ability levels, where other evaluations may be limited by floor effects. It measures deficits in a large range of higher cortical functions and differentiates deficits of varying severity levels, making it useful in tracking changes in cognitive status over time.
Incorporating the 36 tasks from the widely-used DRS, and the 32 stimuli cards, the DRS-2 yields five subscale scores, which provide an overall level of cognitive functioning.
The DRS-2 assesses:
An Alternate Form (Cat. No. 32596) is available, to reduce the practice effects which can occur with serial administrations. Easy-to-use software (Cat.

This scoring/report program requires Windows 95/NT 4.0 with Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher, Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and standard CD-ROM drive for installation.
