Samenvatting

Een Nederlandstalige bewerking van de Controlled Oral Word Association Test (COWAT) werd genormeerd bij 200 gezonde personen in de leeftijd van 17 tot 89 jaar. De COWAT is een letterfluency of fonemische fluencytest, die wereldwijd veel wordt gebruikt in de neuropsychologie. Fluency is een belangrijk aspect van het executief functioneren. De psychometrische eigenschappen (normen, betrouwbaarheid, validiteit) van de Nederlandse versie kwamen goed overeen met die van de oorspronkelijke test. De test heeft een betrouwbaarheid van 0,80 (interne consistentie; paralleltest-betrouwbaarheid is 0,78), en de score hangt significant samen met het opleidingsniveau en/of de woordkennis, maar niet met de leeftijd en het geslacht van de onderzochte persoon.
In een appendix wordt een regressieformule gegeven waarmee de ruwe score kan worden gecorrigeerd voor opleiding.
