Description: The Quick Neurological Screening Test, 3rd Edition, Revised (QNST-3R) provides clarifications and corrections to administration and scoring guidelines; elimination of some items to improve the overall reliability of the assessment; revised age groupings; updated raw score interpretations; and additional analyses of item bias; item performance; and test reliability. The QNST-3R is an individually administered, standard assessment of motor planning and control. And integration of sensory information, for individuals age 5 through geriatric. specifically the QNST-3R is designed to assess neurological soft signs (NSS), which are “minor, non-localizable, and objective abnormalities that are considered to reflect disturbances in the connections between subcortical and cortical regions or between cortical regions”. Soft signs reflect both developmental and neurological processes, and ongoing NSS are related to problems with learning, neurocognitive performance and general daily functioning.

The QNST-3R consists of a series of 11 tasks, and two additional items that score particular elements (left-right skills and behaviour) of the particular task. Tasks include: figure recognition and production, palm form recognition, eye tracking, sound patterns, finger to nose, thumb and finger circle, rapidly reversing repetitive hand movements, arm and leg extension, tandem walk, stand on one leg, skipping left-right discrimination, and behavioral irregularities.

The QNST-3R quantifies the degree of difficulty a person may have with sensory processing, and motor planning and control. It is intended to be used only as a screening instrument not to make a diagnosis. The QNST-3R can be completed and scored in approximately 30 minutes.
