The aim of this study was to investigate the comparability of the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test short form (WCST-64) to the standard form in a clinical population with documented brain pathology: chronic severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Participants were 61 patients at least 1 year after severe TBI living at a large residential rehabilitation facility. The WCST was administered in standard fashion with both the standard and 64-card versions scored. All derived scores with norms were examined. Results indicated that the WCST-64 scores were comparable to the standard version, and assigned impairment levels remained relatively stable. These results suggest the WCST-64 is a valid alternative to the standard version in chronic severe TBI.
