Author: Conners, C.K.
Year: 2014
Description: The Conners Continuous Performance Test 3rd Edition (Conners CPT 3) is a task-oriented computerized assessment of attention-related problems in individuals aged 8 years and older. During the 14-minute, 360-trial administration, respondents are required to push the spacebar when any letter, except “X”, appears. The Conners CPT 3 is an unlimited use program that requires a USB key to run. By indexing the respondent’s performance in areas of inattentiveness, impulsivity, sustained attention, and vigilance, the Conners CPT 3 can be useful to the process of diagnosing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and other neurological conditions related to attention. The Conners CPT 3 provides objective information about an individual’s performance in attention tasks, complementing information obtained from rating scales such as the Conners 3.

The Conners CPT 3 can be used in conjunction with the Conners Continuous Auditory Test of Attention (Conners CATA) which assesses auditory processing and attention-related problems in individuals aged 8 years and older.

New to the Conners CPT 3:

  • Revised paradigm: New ratio of non-targets (the letter X) to targets (all other letters) to improve the test’s sensitivity to impulsivity problems.
  • New and updated normative data
  • New Scores and Score Dimensions of Attention Measured
    • Inattentiveness
    • Impulsivity
    • Sustained Attention
    • Vigilance (new)
  • New age range: Age 8+
  • New easy to understand clinical likelihood statements are based on T-scores and displayed as very high, high, moderate, or minimal.

Scoring and Interpretation

New scores and scoring algorithm have been developed to help assessors pinpoint the exact nature of the respondent’s attention problems. The Conners CPT 3 uses both standardized and raw scores to determine not only the respondent’s performance overall but also in four different aspects of attention: Inattentiveness, Impulsivity, Sustained Attention and Vigilance.
