ABSTRACT

Objective : This study examines the relationship between the Allen Cognitive Level Screen(ACLS) and the Mini Mental State Examination-Korean version(MMSE-K). Methods : For this investigation, we chose 50 old people who were over 60 years old (60 ~89), and inhabited in Wonju city. Two proficient occupational therapists(1st, 2nd author) administered ACLS and MMSE-K separately. Results : Correlation between the ACLS and the MMSE-K was significant, which result was Pearson correlation r=.427(p<.005). ACLS shows revers correlation with age(r=-.417) and correlation with education duration.(r=.359) Correlation between age was significant(F=7.935), and correlation between sex, education duration were statistically insignificant. Conclusion : The result of this study suggests that both ACLS and MMSE-K are valid and sensitivity measurement tools in evaluating cognitive function.
