Abstract

This study of Hebrew speaking Israelis (n = 77) found that the MEAMS had internal reliability (Cronbach alpha =. 75) and parallel form reliability (r =. 71). Validity was examined by correlaing the MEAMS to established tests such as the MMSE (r =. 64) and Clock Completion Test (r = -.53) and Functional Independent Measure (r =. 35). The MEAMS correlated with demographic variables (age r = -.38, education r =. 24).
