PESCO test Memory delay of the list of words 4.73 (3.34)
Standard test Letter-Number sequencing (WAIS-III) 5.19 (2.33) .702 (p < .001)
PESCO test Number-Vowel Sequencing 6.36 (2.04)
Reasoning Standard test Similarities (WAIS-III) 14.53 (4.23) .552 (p = .001)
PESCO test Series of semantic 4.00 (1.02)
Standard test Matrix reasoning (WAIS-III) 9.80 (4.43) .578 (p = .001)
PESCO test Series of logic 2.41 (1.40)
Planning Standard test Zoo map (part 2) 5.97 (3.17) .501 (p = .004)
  PESCO test Parcel delivery 13.68 (1.78)  
  1. HVLT: Hopkins Verbal Learning Test. WAIS-III: Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-III. Zoo map: Behavioral Assessment of the Dysexecutive Syndrome Battery. Raw correct test answers were used as variables, except in the case of Parcel Delivery where the number of actions needed was computed (the lower the number, the better the performance). PESCO tests are shown in bold.
