Abstract : The ability to accurately and efficiently monitor the neurocognitive status of US warfighters under diverse operational and experimental conditions is of critical importance to the ongoing mission and network-centered initiatives of the United States military. The Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM) is a computer assisted tool for evaluating neurocognitive performance with demonstrated effectiveness for application in diverse military operational and research testing scenarios. The primary objective of this project is to examine select psychometric and administration properties of the ANAM4. Four studies are proposed that will 1) examine common use practices and determine the effect of specific administration procedures on ANAM4 performance, 2) assess the test-retest reliability of individual ANAM4 tests, 3) examine the validity of the ANAM4 mood scale, and 4) develop a representative normative dataset for Army National Guard service members. Data collection is complete for Studies 1, 2 and 3; data analysis and manuscript preparation is underway for all three studies. Data collection is ongoing for Study 4.
