Summary of "Impact of the Prevalence of Cognitive Impairment on the Accuracy of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment: The Advantage of Using two MoCA Thresholds to Identify Error-prone Test Scores."

The focus of this study is the classification accuracy of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) for the detection of cognitive impairment (CI). Classification accuracy can be low when the prevalence of CI is either high or low in a clinical sample. A more robust result can be expected when avoiding the range of test scores within which most classification errors are expected, with adequate predictive values for more clinical settings.
