SAGE Test

Researchers at The Ohio State University have developed a self administered test to help you identify a cognitive decline earlier than you might expect.  The test consists of four sheets of thinking exercises.  Each sheet only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete.  You only need to complete one of the four as they are interchangeable.  The good part is that you can take it repeatedly to monitor your changes.


The researchers have been working on the test for over 5 years to make sure it is a valid tool to use.  The accuracy of the test is significant with 80% of those who have a cognitive impairment when taking this test being identified and 95% of those who do not getting normal scores.  When it was announced recently, it proved so popular the requests to download it from the university's website crashed their system.
