Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the discriminative validity of the McCarron-Dial System (MDS) in neuropsychological assessment. Multiple discriminant analysis results indicate that 92-6% of the brain-damaged and non-brain-damaged groups, and 69-6% of the right, left and diffused braindamaged subgroups were correctly classified using the abbreviated version of the MDS. The results tentatively support the discriminative ability of the MDS for neurobehavioural diagnosis. Since the MDS has a long tradition in vocational rehabilitation and established strengths in predicting vocational and community adjustment outcomes, it may be potentially useful for both vocational and clinical neuropsychological assessment.
